This simply stops Windows wasting time updating the time stamp on each folder/subfolder on your computer. This should only be attempted if you have a very large number of folders and you are using NTFS file system.

Click Start and Run.

Type in 'regedit' and press OK.

Locate 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\

Right click in the FileSystem directory and select 'New'.

Then select 'DWORD' value.

Enter the name for the 'DWORD' value as 'NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate'.

Double click on 'NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate'.

Enter 1 as the value.

Press OK and close regedit.
