Right Click response time.

Guest

Whenever i right click on certain files, it takes ages for the menu to come
up. That explorer window hangs but eventually comes up with the menu. There
are no signs of CPU stress and my computer has decent specs.
It also does this sometimes when i double click on files, say an mp3 file to
play in winamp, i would double click on it, it would take ages to pop up and
then if i closed winamp and open up another song it would open instantly. Is
there a way i can maybe clean up the right click menu and try figure out what
its hanging on?

This may help you,

Right-click is slow or weird behavior caused by context menu handlers

Right-click is extremely slow only when Network is enabled
