When cursor pauses on "send to" button in drop down menu of a file, the cursor becomes frozen.

If you leave it for a while, does it "unfreeze" itself? Or does it stay frozen forever? If it's the first one, then it's likely a resource issue (something is hogging your computer's resources), if it the last one - then it's likely that a program is malfunctioning and causing this.

Two different ways to proceed with this, so we'll have to know which in order to get started.

It stays frozen. I use alt/ctrl/del to end the process.

Which process do you end to "unfreeze" it? Is it explorer.exe? If so, use this free utility to see what's running within the explorer.exe process: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysintern...ssExplorer.mspx

The most valuable tab here (IMO) is probably the Threads tab of the Properties dialog. To get there without right clicking, go to the "Process" menu item and then click on "Properties". Leave this Windows visible and then go right click on something and select "Send To" - and see what pops up in the dialog. With that info we may be able to isolate the cause.

Also, you may also want to keep an eye on the main window of Process Explorer to see what it does when you select "Send To".

It looks like I will need on site help. Thanks for trying.
