windows delete problem

I'm wondering if any of the eminent computer folks on this forum can help me with this minor but very annoying problem.

I have a new windows machine with W2K installed on it. I've been using it for less than 1 month. The problem is that deleting any file (even tiny files) takes a long time-- about 1 minute.

When I delete permanently it doesn't take a long time, so I assume that the problem has to do with the recycle bin. I've reduced the "max size of the bin" to 1%. The drive is 110GB.

Any suggestions on to improve the situation beyond disabling the recycle bin (something I'd rather not do)?
