Win7 Right click context menu slow to appear

November 7, 2010 at 06:03:08
Specs: Windows 7, 2G
When I right click to rename or perform another option on a file, it takes over 30 seconds for the options box to appear. What is the problem? I am using win 7 64 bit.

is this a new situation?
has it happened since an update?
new hardware been added.
try a system restore to before it happened.
check your running process's
try sfc /scannow in the run box
you can always save your files and do a factory restore to the day you bought the machine

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

This is a new machine out of the box and has had the issue since I started it up.

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

"This is a new machine out of the box and has had the issue since I started it up."

New Machine= warranty
why not just take it back as you probably have a lemon.
