Definitely the new one. It's very handy to be able to see your file list whilst edtiing.Of course everyone likes the old one – it's what they're used to! But that's not a reason at to which is better. How many people are saying they prefer Windows XP over Windows Vista? In the long term, the newer is better – its just a matter of getting use to it.

Of the 2 choices, I prfeer the new – but maybe that is because I am so used to looking at SiteCenter! What I would really prfeer is something that was more user friendly – ie. you could select page NAME ("Choose a page to edit: Home Page, About Us, etc") rather than by file name, as end users of this type of system don't need or want to understand about site and file structures. They think "I want to edit the About Us page" so how can you make that easier for them?

Gosh, I could write much much more about cases like this one :) But in most cases the problem lies wihtin driver/manager supplied with certain display adapter (especially by AMD/ATI & Intel) - some of them have really weird keyboard shortcuts, even "wild" I'd say :)Oj, o takich przypadkach mf3g?bym si? rozpisa? :) Ale wi?kszo?? problemf3w stanowi? najcz??ciej sterowniki i managery dodawane do kart graficznych (szczegf3lnie AMD/ATI i Intel) - tam niektf3re domy?lne skrf3ty klawiaturowe s? naprawd? dziwne, rzek?bym nawet "dzikie" :)

I disabled all non-microsoft extensions but still problem is occurring. explorer.exe is using 50-99 percent of CPU which slows down my PC and results in hanging....

Its normally a safe file, but may be completely unsafe when attacked by any virus or trojan or spyware. It is the most vulnerable file in Windows.
