Hi I posted in here before about this problem but it's definately not been helped by tune up, defragging, or clearing up the computer. The problem is that my pc is very slow when right clicking on files or folders, or by slecting them and clicking file from the toolbar. The only ideas I have are that it could be the hard drive or a virus, but either way leaving it hasn't worked. It's not connected to the internet either. Can anybody help?!

download the following tool

Extracts and load.

Click on COMPANY column, and sort. Select each item that is NOT from Microsoft. HOLD THE SHIFT KEY DOWN as you select each item to select multiple items

Press the RED button at the top

Say yes to disable

Reboot.

You have now disabled all non-MS context menu extensions.

Does the problem continue on reboot?

Post back.

Please help. After I click on your link, what am I to do? Don't see any extracts and load?

Feeling really stupid.
