Windows Explorer Hangs when Right Clicking any jpg file or files

If I right click any jpg file, it causes windows explorer to hang. I cannot open the right click menu. If I click on any other type of file, no problem. Any ideas how to fix this? I am using Windows 7, SP1 with all of the latest updates and Windows Security Essentials.
