i have this annoying XP Home SP3, at random when clicking on 'All programs' the menu will popup but blank and freeze the machine for around 20-30 seconds, then back to normal again, but while this happens, I can click on desktop icons say deleting them, even though the action wot action until the freezing goes away. I have done the usual Spyware check and Combofix, the machine runs ok otherwise, done the usual Perfectdisk defrag and offline defrag too, the machine is a AMD X4 with 4GB on a ASRock.
I have also tried disabling all the context menus but same, also does this in safemode so I am suspecting its something core related, can anyone help on this one ?
