    Whenever I right click on a file or folder, it will take up to 30 seconds for the right click menu to appear. I've cleaned my registry, and followed many other forums for what to do, but nothing has worked so far. Also, this is not the problem where I have to left click on it before right clicking will work, because that does not help. In my right click menu (when it does pop up) there are a lot of options in there (like scan for viruses, or if it's a folder, it will say add to playlist, play with media player, and stuff like that) and I don't know if it's any of these that is causing the problem. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
