Whenever I delete a file on my Vista laptop from the desktop it takes to move to the recycle bin.

Any ideas anyone plz?

"With Vista I got a marked speed improvement in
file operations by disabling Remote Differential Compression. Control Panel/Programs and Features/ Turn Windows features on or off/Uncheck Remote
Differential Compression. I have found no negatives to disabling RDC. Hope this helps".

And some further speedups for Vista - one of which is that described above
