    I am using Windows 7 Home premium 64bit(genuine) on 2.30 dual core CPU with 3 GB. Few months ago I reinstalled windows and a month after the reinstall, whenever I right click on only any file to open/cut/copy/rename/delete, it takes too much time, and many times the folder in which file exist goes unresponding. I am using AVAST (after using 60 day trial of Norton) and it is updated regularly.

    Please help

    no I simply uninstalled it from control panel and there was no error in uninstallation. Further, the right click problem has appeared long before uninstalling Norton.

    Are you current with Windows and other updates? Some time ago (maybe six months or so) my Windows 7 systems started having that annoying right click delay of a couple seconds and then returned to proper behavior several weeks later. I assume that an update was somehow involved in causing the problem and another update corrected it.

    MY OS is update to date regarding updates. In my case it is not a couple of second delay, some times right click menu appears after 20-40 sec delay and some time it cause the folder to "not responding" state, which then solved by restarting the windows explorer.

    But did it appear while you had Norton?

    In any case, you need to run the removal tool to avoid any serious Internet
    connection issues.

    yes, It appeared when I was using Norton. Now I am downloading the removal tool and after running it, I will let you know if there is any improvement.

    Right click is working normally so far after I ran the Norton Removal Tool. I am not sure if the problem is been solved on permanent basis or like before right click is behaving normally, temporarily. I will check it for a day or two and if it keeps working normally, then I will marked the thread solved.
    Thanks for you time and kind help.
