Windows 7: sub explorer: opening desktop is slow

sub explorer: opening desktop is slow

When I try to click on desktop in one of those sub explorer window that programs use to open/save files, the program would stop for few seconds and start loading icons one by one.

It suddenly started happening and I have no idea where that came from.
There are about 30 icons, and about 90% of them are shortcuts. They do not point to any invalid path.
It only happens when I try to access the desktop, and it's universal to all programs.

I also noticed that when I try to refresh on the desktop by pressing F5, the icon disappears for 3 seconds and refreshes. This may lead to a fact that there is something wrong when trying to load desktop, but I can't figure out the cause.

Anybody have guesses what the cause would be?
The only program I'm running is Bluetooth Manager in the background.
