The scan of '_'

We are finding these events in the Windows Application Event log on many machines:

The scan of '_' has taken too long to complete and is being canceled.

Also, noticed an uptick in the general number of "taken too long to completes"...?

I'd like to nail the cause for this. I'm wondering if there is a limit to the number of characters in a path/filename? or if this is DAT related. Really just looking for suggestions. Any ideas for tracking this down?
