    ZIP files started opening excruciatingly slow from USB stick on Win10


    When I got this Windows 10 laptop it was running like a breeze. Now all of a sudden about a month ago when I plug in my USB stick to transfer folder contents in a ZIP archive, the whole thing grids to a halt. I take those files from a Windows 8.1 desktop and the thing flies there like a charm. No problems at all.

    Again, this started happening just recently. Also note that other folders seem to work fast. It only happens when I transfer files in a ZIP archive to this Windows 10 machine on a USB stick.


    So I'm wondering, how do I get the speed of my USB folder back?


    PS. And while I'm at it, how do you disable updates? I know that people talk about viruses. I ain't got none for a long time. The only crap that gets me are updates.

    IMO, the most effective way is to disable networking on your W10 PC and use another PC for the Internet.

    If you don't like that approach, have a look at this thread:
