The other day windows started acting up on me. (more than usual) Every time i attempt to use a windows based rigt click context menu, explorer freezes on me. all i get when i right click is the hourglass. When i bring up task manager nothing looks amiss. so i close explorer and start it again as a new task but the problem will not go away. I cannot even move a file from one folder to the next without it doing this to me.

Windows XP Home Edition SP2
Dell Inspirion B130 Laptop (out of warranty)

Did a virus scan and came up with nothing. also i scan regularly for malware and never get a hit (except for cookies)

any ideas?

I use AVG. but i figured it out by going into the registry and stopping each context menue 1 by 1 till i got it.

Hi
I've had the similar problem, i reinstalled os, but it didn't help. Then i skanned my hd for bad sectors and found them. Only changing of hd allowed to fix the problem with context menu.
