I installed HP drivers for my OfficeJet 7410 All-in-One, from the Website.
When I go to open up a file and use the drop-down box to browse to a certain
location, it will stall for about five minutes before I get the Window. It
does this in Internet Explorer, My Computer, the RUN command, MS Word, and
basically everywhere this function is used.
I uninstalled the drivers and everything works fine.
I heard there was an issue re: this
How can I fix this.

Check at the HP website for updated drivers. It sounds like yours are
corrupted.

That's what I thought too, so these are the drivers straight from HP's
website, and they act just the same as my older drivers.
