Ok First off. Let me start with what I've tried. I've read the post on context menu errors. I've since downloaded ShellExView and turned off ALL non-windows Context menus. Now this fixed the lag on some files. I've also tried sfc /scannow to no avail. I've scanned with Spybot S&D, Norton Antivirus 2004 (Up to date on definitions), I also run Zonealarm Pro 5, and I went out and bought Lavasoft Adware Professional SE 1.05.


Now movies, and pictures, and basically any media file still continues to have this problem. When I right click it may be anywhere from 10 to 60 seconds before a context menu will show its face, and when it does theres a good chance it will disappear and I'll have to try and open it again.

I'm at a loss and would hate to have to format and start all over. Any Ideas? If theres any logs or anything you need just ask. Didn't want to post anything here that would be a waste of your time to read.

also, as a test,

1. Start the Control Panel Display applet.
2. Select the Appearance tab.
3. Click Effects, then clear the "Use the following transition effect for
menus and tooltips" check box.
4. Click OK to close all dialog boxes.

This Worked for me

I installed somthing across a network, and every time I right clicked it was trying to refer to the networked computer which wasnt there anymore.
