Windows XP Pro Explorer slow menu display on right click of folder
Posted on 2004-10-27
Right clicking on a folder takes about 2 minutes to display. I have run Virus scans, AdAware, SpyBot, ShellExView (disabled all except MS) and in general reviewed all of the "slow" entries here.
Right clicking on a desktop icon is normal. Right clicking on My Documents in Explorer view is normal but right clicking on a subfolder is slow. Right clicking on a local drive letter is slow.
I have two XP Pro desktop machines (Micron & Dell) and a laptop (eMachine) and but it only happens on the Dell. These machines are networked but the problem is with local drives to the Dell. If I access the Dell from another machine, the response is normal for a network drive.
