    Hey guys,

    When I right-click files such as .rar or .doc files, the context menu used to load really slow but I found out it was due to so many applications installing their "shells" on the context menu, such as "compress, compress and email..." and the list goes on. I removed most of them through registry edits and now the context menu comes up almost instantly.

    There is still one problem, ANY .exe file takes about 1 second to load the context menu when right-clicked. I've tried removing almost ALL the options in the context menu but it still didn't help. Anyone know what the problem is?
