Hi, I'm new to the site but I have been lurking trying to find a fix to my problem I am running Windows XP (no SP2) on a Sony PCG-V505 laptop Pentium M, 1.4GHz with 512DDR. Whenever I right-click on an icon on my desktop it takes anywhere from 20seconds to almost 2 minutes for the menu to appear. This only happens with certain file types. Right clicking on My Documents, Recycle Bin, etc dont show this problem but right clicking anywhere else (MSword file, .pdf, .jpg, the desktop itself) causes the problem I have defragged the computer several times using the xp defrag as well as perfectdisk. I tried registry mechanic and several other programs all to no avail. tweak ui and editing menushowdelay in regedit dont seem to help either. I also cant find my cd to reformat the computer =(. Thanks for any and all help!
