    When I right click on files (but not shortcuts), it takes 7-10 seconds for the right click menu to open. All of the time, Task Manager displays 0 or normal CPU usage until the right click menu opens, then it's at 100% until I close it. Needless to say, this is pissing me off. It has been going on for about a month now, but it seems to come and go. Restarting doesn't help, I don't have any viruses, and I see no reason why I should be short on memory. Often times, my comp seems very slow compared to when I first got it. This is a very frustrating issue for me, so thank's in advance for any help.

    Cybertech,

    Thank's for the post, but the problem still remains. I think that part of the problem was because of the XP update 811493. Microsoft addressed the problem after they recieved many complaints, and modified the update to fix the bug. According to other users on various forums, there are more than one of the updates that affect performance, but number 811493 is the only one I could find official information posted on Microsoft's website about performance issues. To find out if you're affected by this update, check the versions of the Ntkrnlpa.exe and Ntoskrnl.exe files (navigate to C:\WINDOWS\SERVICEPACKFILES\I386). If the version is 5.1.2600.1106, you're okay. If it has been changed to 5.1.2600.1133 or 5.1.2600.1150 or higher, the following site kind of explains why there's a problem, and most importantly, how to fix it: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;819634

    I fixed this problem, but not much came of it. I'm still having hardcore performance issues. HELP ME!
