SP2? You'll probably want to bring this system up to SP3 and hotfixes afterwards. But I doubt this will do anything to fix your slow context menu. I'm guessing there's some entries in this menu that need to be cleaned up. Check your registry at:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ Directory \ Background  \ shellex \ ContextMenuHandlers
Be sure to back up this folder first, then delete them and see if that helps. You'll need to logoff/logon (or reboot) for Windows to reload the context menu. Let us know how it goes...
