For a very long time now, every time I right mouse click on ANYTHING I get the thinking hourglass for about 20 0r 30 seconds. Sometimes it just locks up my computer and I have to reboot. If I just want to copy and paste or any option that right click gives me, it just takes a while for the box to appear. Sometimes it dosnt appear at all and I have to re-right click. Any Ideas? Thanks Dave

Rightclick on My Computer.
Then Properties.
Advanced.
Performance.
In the field Performance, click Settings.
And click on the circle that says "Best Performance".
The slowdown should be gone.

If you don't like this theme, turn on everything, except Shadows.

My guess is that your pc is an Intel Celeron. They have that problem.

That's interesting. I have an Intel Celeron I've been using for over three years and never had that problem. But, then again, I have most of the eye candy turned off. Only have four items selected in the Visual Effects department.

Thanks for making me aware of that in case I ever have that paticular problem.
