Extracting a file in Vista is surprisingly slow

Where I work, I routinely get a zip file that contains files for a website. It has multiple file and folders. I simply copy these files into the directory for the website but this time I thought I’d unzip the file first to see just how long it takes. I’ve heard Vista’s extraction is slow…but I didn’t think it could be this bad.


This system is pretty new, 10k drives, 2.4Ghz C2D processors.
