Vista damn slow at copying (deleting) files

It has been months since Vista was launched. Even today, we hear lots of errors in it. One famous error of Vista is its great speed of copying.

It's been almost nine months since this copy bug was first reported by different blogs stating the Windows Vista's inability to copy, delete and move files without stalling indefinitely, and yet the problem continues.

Screen shots relayed by different bloggers as well as forumers say it better than we ever could.

At one place I had read this-

48167 Days and 23 hours remaining


While another stated

36843 Days and 0 hours remaining



Both are Vista's best-faith guesses as to how long it will take to copy data from one location to another. "I have been experiencing slow copying ever since I 'upgraded' to Vista earlier this year, particularly from USB keys & drives," writes Adrian Procter, a forumer.

Coming to my experience, when I tried to create a CD with just 168Mb of pictures, Vista told me it would take more than 131 years to complete the job.

Don't you believe me?? see this screenshot!!
Vista slow at copying files.

Now, if I wait 131 years just for a file of mine to copy... By the way, shall I remain alive these many years??

yep I have had this problem
I have also had the issue that even thought I have closed a file and I have uploaded it on to imageshack.us I get an error from Vista telling me I can't save over the file if I try change something on it as it is open by another app. Closing IE, Firefox and any other programs in process does not sort this, the only way to fix it is to restart the PC.
bring on SP1

That is so funny, I can't believe it. I've never seen it go past an insane amount of minutes.
