The only other thing I can suggest is to try a repair install.

Interesting that you have WinRAR highlighted in ShellExView.

There is a known issue involving WinRAR and the context menu, involving 32-bit and 64-bit dlls. In WinRAR, disable shell integration. Test. Report.

Hey mate,

I had the exact same issue as you are having. Scoured the internet for hours, still no avail. I then uncovered an excellent post (cited below) with my fix.

The issue lies within Nvidia and their Nvidia Display Manager.

Possible Solution:
*BACKUP YOUR REGISTRY! - You always need a backup when you modify your registry! (Registry - Backup and Restore)
*Go to your start menu
*In the search type "regedit" and hit enter
*Browse to "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\ContextMenuHandlers"
*Locate "NvCplDesktopContext"
*Right click on "NvCplDesktopContext" and select "delete"
*Close regedit...
*Right click on your desktop!

Now, if you are like me and you want it to WORK and not lag, follow the following steps:
*BACKUP YOUR REGISTRY! - You always need a backup when you modify your registry! (Registry - Backup and Restore)
*Follow the above steps first --- then proceed below
*Go to your start menu
*In the search type "regedit" and hit enter
*Browse to "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell"
*Right click on "Shell" and add new key. Name the key "Nvidia Control Panel"
*Right click on your newly added key and name it "Command"
*Double click the newly created "Command" key and enter into the Default Value "c:\windows\system32\nvcplui.exe"

Viola, it should work. Post back and let us know if this or the above were solutions.
