    Those folders must be containing a large number of files.Ur OS takes some time to calculate the size of the folders to show in the tooltip when u hover over the folder.

    @NagpurDaMunda if you have large number of zip files or zip files with many files in the root of that directory and you have a virus scanner installed then this will be the problem. just copy those zip files into other directory, this might solve the problem.

    EDIT: Distribut the files in that folder into two or three child folders.

    Disabling pagefile clear :
    * Click Start
    * Click Control Panel
    * Click Administrative Tools
    * Click Local Security Policy
    * Click the "+" next to Local Policies
    * Click Security Options
    * Doubleclick "Shutdown: Clear Virtual Memory Pagefile"
    * Select the "Disabled" radio button
    * Click OK

    Indexing Service:
    Run > 'services.msc'
    In that window, on the right pane, find/choose Indexing service double click and set it to automatic :)
