Works fine for me.

What specific version/build of Windows 7 ?

Is 'D:' a network drive, DVD .. ?

When seleing the downloads folder it hangs, or when you click on another folder within it? How many files/folders are within downloads and other folders?

Running on Windows 7 ultimate x-64 with latest Microsoft updates.

I use File -> Open menu to try to get to a file.

I select my D drive, then select my folder Downloads. At this point I want to drill down another level to a folder that contains the files.

Instead the open file dialog hangs indefinitely.
