XP (in Boot Camp) long lag deleting a file

I've got a pretty beefy Mac Pro on my desk, and I've used it in Boot Camp mode (with Windows XP) for most of its life.

"Empty the trash.

When the trash is full and you delete a new file, Windows needs to index the entire can to figure out what to delete.

Alternatively, you can hold down [Shift] when you delete a file to skip the trash can and delete it permanently."
