I try:
- Disable index
- cleanup HD
- disable effects
- disable kaspersky
- change folders options
- check disk
- defrag disk

This is more than a shot in the dark.

Disable WinRAR shell integration.

Failing that, use ShellExView to locate other candidates.

What?

The tool is most useful TO disable items.

Allow me to start fresh.

A common cause of the slowdown that you describe is a poorly implemented context menu handler. Yes, I know you are not activating the context menu to get the problem.

Do you have WinRAR - a widely distributed program and known cause of this type of problem, especially when attempting to use the 64-bit version.

Your willingness to delete registry entries manually may be a reasonable indication of what is wrong with your system.

A more prudent approach might be to uninstall programs which you think may be causing the problem.

You haven't provided enough detail for me to of much more help.

have you lighten up your context menu? Erase your tracks, such as the recent documents and so on~~~~~Try Rgistry Cleaner~~~Have you done these?
