Are you sure it is Windows Explorer 7?  Go to the "help" tab and click on "About Internet Explorer."  It will list the version there.

There could be a number of reasons as to why the right click context menu takes a long time to display. Have a look through the troubleshooting steps on this article and see if any of the steps there help resolve your issue: http://www.online-tech-tips.com/windows-8/slow-right-click-context-menu/

It's NOT Internet Explorer I'm talking about -- it's Windows Explorer and the right-click menu. If I want to add a new folder, it takes up to a minute to actually add the folder. If I want to re-arrange my desktop, it can take up to a minute for the menu to show up. I know the difference between a browser and the folder directory.

Yes I did. The steps in that article can also apply to Windows 7.
