Windows 7: Waiting after right click in Computer

Waiting after right click in Computer

Waiting Cursor problem in using right click anywhere in Computer. When I right click on a drive letter or a subfolder I expect to instantly see a dropdown list containing Open, Delete, Rename, Properties etc. But what I get is over five minutes of blue circle waiting, then the drop down list appears. This happens every time I use right click anywhere in Computer--no exceptions. Any help would be appreciated.

Open Task Manager and go to the "processes" tab - do a right click on the mouse and see what is happening to cause your system to go into a wait state.

What anti-virus are you using? Temporarily disable it and see if it makes a difference.

Welcome to Seven Forums bluefish. I always suggest using ShellExView as shown in method 2 on this site for context menu delay issues. I have used it myself in the past.

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