I just got a new computer a week ago or so, and I'm not sure when this started happening, but now when I right-click an icon on the Windows 7 Desktop, the delay between the right click and the shortcut menu display is close to 30 seconds. I've googled this and people talk about uninstalling an Nvidia driver, which I don't have installed--I went through Control Panel to see installed programs and through Device driver tabs and didn't see Nvidia anywhere. They also talk about context menus and going into registry and deleting there. As far as I know, I don't have any context menu in place in the registry. My registry for ContextMenu reads: (Default) REG_SZ (value not set). Any ideas? The wait time is driving me crazy.
