Slowness when browsing folders?

I installed 10.9 (and upgraded to 10.9.1) a few days ago and have been noticing some odd slowness when browsing folders. For example, if I save a file from Chrome and click on the dropdown to select another folder, it takes about 5-10 seconds for the dropdown to actually appear. The application locks up during this time (spinning beachball of doom).


This happens in regular Finder windows as well. It happens across all drives as well, not just the boot drive. This behavior is also occurring in the terminal (just doing an "ls" of a folder.. it locks up for a few seconds then finally displays). 




Mobo: Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k


Video: AMD Radeon 7950 3GB

Boot drive: 50gb SSD on Intel SATA controller (HFS+)

Other drives: A 120gb SSD and various hard drives on Intel and JMicron SATA controllers (all of these are NTFS)


Booting with Chameleon using:

EthernetBuiltIn: Yes

Graphics Mode: 1024x768x32

GraphicsEnabler: Yes

Kernel: mach_kernel

UserKernelCache: Yes


And I have the following kext in my Extras folder:

Everything works fine and aside from the lag, I'm not seeing any problems in disk speed or access speed. There are no console messages when the lag occurs either, unfortunately.
Can anyone help?
