Recently, I've noticed that the standard (Windows 8.1) file dialog always causes a delay of around 5-7 seconds after it's closed. Both for open and save scenarios.

It happens on all applications. I even tried writing a small MFC program to test this, which only opens a file dialog and then displays the selected file path.

The dialog closes, but the application is blocked until 5-7 seconds pass, at which time the result is shown. This also happens if the file dialog cancel button is pressed.

Any idea how to fix this annoying thing?
