Windows 7: 1-3 minutes waiting for right click menu on icons

I would first remove ACDSee to see if that fixes the problem. If it didn't, then I'd remove VLC.

VLC is cool...ACDSee maybe...

But I would worry about Kaspersky (i had a lot of explorer.exe crashes on Windows 7 until i uninstalled it)

If I thought Kaspersky was doing something to the context menu, I'd agree. However, AFAIK, Kaspersky doesn't have any context menu items so it shouldn't be causing the slowdown. If removing ACDSee and VLC doesn't help, Kaspersky could be the next app removed (it won't hurt anyway).

Something very annoying is happening on this forum now - it's parsing A F A I K to "As far as I know". Anyone know how to stop that crap from happening (I'll keep looking, but help is appreciated - especially since I don't seem to be able to deselect "automatically parse links in text".)

Just my 0.02$
The only thing i now that there is a lot of kaspersky issues with the context menu described in this thread KIS 2010 & explorer.exe crash problem - Kaspersky Lab Forum

I had this case two time in a row. After installation of Kaspersky 2010 the explorer.exe would crash or slowen every time you bring up a contex menu holding it.

I uninstalled Kaspersky and i'm using MSE until a update arrives and i havent got any problems.

Here's what's really dumb - when I quote or even go advanced, I see
Code:
afaik
(a f a i k, since it's parsed again), but it still parses everything when I preview or post. It even parses inside a code block.

WinRar is also cool. Must be ACDSee?

There's a new windows update (available through windows update as of yesterday) that makes changes to explorer. Have you applied that? Perhaps it would help.

Is there a way I can remove them from the right click menu without removing the whole program?
