When things work correctly, icons update within about 10 seconds. When
things are bad, icons never update at all. Even closing and reopening
Windows Explorer doesn't help.

700MB with about 3000 files and about 1200 folders. I can get specific
counts if you need them.

No. It's one directory level down from C:\

We do use two-pane view. When it works, both the tree and the right pane
are OK. When it doesn't, neither are correct.

I can try tweaking this. Right now, only fixed drives are checked (no
network or removable drives).

Thanks for the idea. I'll tweak this and post back with my results. Erik
