Specs: Windows XP
I have the problem where I can't delete on a right click from the windows environment In the internet, my right click works fine. I want to clear out desktop icons, files from My Documents, etc. but the right click doesn't work. I know I need to download and run ShellExView, but my operating system (XP) won't let me. I have disabled my anti-virus programs but still can't download it. How can I fix this problem?

Follow the above, but use a 0 to enable right clicking

I don't want to disable the right click, I would like to fix it so it won't hang... Whenever I try to right click delete, it ties up my machine for a long time before the submenu comes up. I CAN delete off the submenu, but it just takes forever. I want to speed it up.

Linda, Try downloading it at the link below. There's a zip and an exe version at the bottom of the page.

I found that site the first day I had my problem. I have tried NUMEROUS times to download the files (or run) and can't get them to completely download. I get some files, get the zip file, unload the zip file, then look for the .exe and it is not included in the zip. I get all the backup stuff but not the meat & potatoes! I even wrote the nirsoft guy and he said I must have an anti-virus on that is keeping it from loading. I disabled webroot, disabled Trend and McAfee, but still can't get the exe to download.

disabled Trend and McAfee

That might be the root of you problem. You should never have two anti-virus applications running simultaneously, they will interfere with each other and cause all kinds of problem. UN-install them both then reinstall he one you want to keep.

Sorry, I misunderstood your question. I thought the right click option was disabled.

"I disabled webroot, disabled Trend and McAfee"

A little overly paranoid? Why would you install 3 separate anti-v/anti-spy programs. Dump them all & try this:
