Sticky Drop down menu help

Recently, whenever I right click something to open the drop down menu, It is really laggy and sometimes "sticks". There is no way to describe it, So I made a video. Sorry for bad quality, compressed to save time.

This will only go away after I open a full window like call of duty or battlefield.

Thanks for any help!

Explorer Drop Down Menu
Win 7 doesn't seem to have an "Open With" option on the right click or shift right click menu for executables. What I frequently want to do is examine an executable with, for example, WinHex. I'm sure there is a simple registry fix but I can't find it. Help! Thanks
