    ok, this sounds weird; but i get a REALLY delayed menu popup when i right click on any folder or file.
    im using xp, on a more than powerfull enough machine. any tweaks or ideas of what might cause this?

    sorry this is hard to explain, i hope it makes sense.. lol

    thx a ton :)

    If you have a lot of registered programs in the context menu (ie winzip), it can slow things down depending on the associations. You shouldbe able to turn a lot of those functions off. If it's "stock", then I don't have any idea what could cause it.
