Hey all,

I've been running my windows XP for a couple of years on a regular basis installing programs, removing them etc.
I've come to notice that when I right click a file (video, song, word document etc.) the menu takes a very long time to come up (can go from 5 to 25 seconds). The same case goes for deleting a file. When I press the DEL key, the yes/no message takes ages to appear.
What is causing this?
Is there a tweak to change the pop-up speed like for the programs when I hit the start button?
Is there a program that can clear useless clutter efficiently to avoid these sort of lags?

Thanks in advance,

Ed

Fixed! Had to remove a few registry keys:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers
Deleted the keys one by one until I foud the culprit: move on boot and winrar were slowing it down!

Thanks anyway for your advice!
