Windows 7: Right click not responding and very slow.

Right click not responding and very slow.

Whenever I right click on a file such as a photo or even IE the computer goes into a non responsive mode. If I wait it out at least 45+ seconds generally the menu comes up. This is pretty frustrating. Have seen a few posts with the shellexviewer etc and started to go that route but I decided to do a restore at a earlier point and now and looking for a fresh perspective on this and some help for a fairly unsavvy computer guy. Thanks

Hello dbcrawford, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If a restore point dated before a issue started is available, then a system restore using that restore point is usually the easiest route to take to undo and fix a issue.

From what you described, it sounds like you may have had a bad context menu item added by some program that you installed causing this issue. You could have also used ShellExView to slowly disable each 3rd party context menu item one by one in hopes of finding the culprit as described in Method 2 here, but I find system restore to be faster and easier.

Did you get it sorted with a system restore?

No the problem is still there after system restore. I will try the shellex method and see what happens and then get back with that
