Right clicking for the first time is extremely slow.

I've kept my XP machine that I built in 2005 in top shape for the past four years and change. It's gone through two re-formats, but I'm still proud of my little S939 3500+ now showing up my college roommates after all this time.

With my recent video card upgrade, I can run Crysis while listening to music without a hitch.

The only major annoyance I get from my PC right now is the fact that the first time I right click on a file or folder or even the desktop for the first time after I come back from hibernation, it takes about 10 seconds for the context window to appear.

Sure I have a few shell extensions: Edit with Notepad++, WinRar actions, Picassa Actions, Groove Actions etc. Rather than go into each of these programs and find how to turn them off, I'm wondering if there's a single registry key I can edit to speed up my right click response.

Is it even these items that are doing it?

This could be caused by a shell extension slowing it down.
