Right click on image files freezes and slow boot
I have 2 problems. They don't pose a serious delay in my use of the computer, but are nevertheless a major inconvenience.
1-I noticed boot time is now about 3x as long from the log in screen to the desktop
2 -Nothing happens and the loading icon stays up and spinning when I right click on an image file. And only image files. All other files such as PDFs, Visual studio projects, and Office files function correctly. I noticed that the right click function returns for only a few minutes after I manually end the explorer.exe process and restart it, and then it goes back to my issue. This is a temporary way around the issue but it isn't the correct way to be fixed. I am trying my hardest to avoid an OS restore, as I currently do not have the money to invest in an external hard drive to back up personal files onto. I have my Windows 7 recovery disk, ready to be used if need be.
I've tried fixing both problems as so.
-Restarted windows 7 in normal mode
-scanned both hard drives with McAfee anti-virus software.
-Defragmented both hard drives
-turned off unnecessary third party boot applications, no improvement in boot time
-downloaded and used ShellExView utility to test individual context menu handlers, no joy.
-currently checking D: for errors using the (error-checking) function of the disk's property's menu.
As a side note, I do not know if this will be of any help or burden. I recently moved 34 GB worth of iTunes back ups from the default location
To a file on the D: drive.
