My Documents Folder Takes Exceedingly Long Time To Load

Issue | Reason | Resolution


Issue:


Every time My Documents folder load, it take a long time to load exceeding a minutes at times.


Reason:


While there might be many causes of this problem, in this case the problem was caused by the computer’s DNS being pointed to the wrong DNS server.


Resolution:


After a number of troubleshooting efforts from support documents available on the web, we began troubleshooting the issue by turning on/off the wireless connection. Immediately after disabling the wireless connection, the problem was no longer present.


Step 1: Turn off your wireless feature and recheck the problem


Step 2: Verify that your computer’s DNS settings are correct.

  • Access the network connection properties by right clicking your network connection and then left clicking on properties. (This will bring you to a list that will have Internet Protocol (TCP-IP) listed on it)
  • Click on the TCP-IP settings, click on properties. (This will bring you to the screen that allows you to change your DNS settings to be configured automatically or manually along with your IP address.)
  • Configure the settings and set to ‘Automatic’
  • Alternatively, depending upon your network setup, you may need to enter in an updated IP address in your settings control panel.
