Hi, welcome to the forum.
You're supposed to mention what folder you clicked on to get stuck.
If possible please try to provide as much detail as possible.

Allright since the cause of the problem is quite vague we might have to do some troubleshooting.

  • Caching of thumnails in a folder can cause slowdowns while opening a folder. So try to change your view to "detail" or "list", to prevent thumbnail display and caching.
  • In my system I have separate folders inside my Downloads folder for documents, pictures, music, videos and general items. When I download, I set it the download location to the corresponding item and optimize the folder accordingly.

    For eg: if I download video, I download it to videos folder and for the optimization I do the following procedure.

    Right Click on the Folder->Properties->Customize tab->Select Optimize this folder for Videos.
    Like this, I optimize each folder correspondingly.

    If you don't have separate download folders, then it's better you optimize it for General Items. For that:
    Right click on Downloads folder->Properties->Customize tab->Select Optimize this folder for General Items.
  • If your downloads folder is still opening slow, try defragmenting the drive using the built in Windows 7 defragmenter, or by using Defraggler you can defrag the specific folder that is slow to open.

After you perform these steps, do post back if you got the folder to open faster than before. If not, I'll give you more troubleshooting tips.

Could you please explain a little? Does your system hang after logging into your system after booting up? Or when does it exactly start hanging??

The more the info you give, you're bound to get better help. So expand your explaination as to what you were trying to do, what happens etc...
