1) Does the same thing happen in safe mode?

2) What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?

3) Please use punctuation in your posts - maybe it's just me but I find your post difficult to read. Thanks.

You can also use autoruns to uncheck shellex context menu entries one by one and determine which one is causing slowness.

hi, fistly to allan, the only new item installed was an update of open office, it is now called apache open office and operates exactly as before, running scans before instal as a usual precaution nothing showed has a virus, so that is ruled out, to jcolt I have downloaded the shellview and intend to do method two, it is a heavy weight program and I will sit and study it before I start, to narenxp, I have also downloaded autoruns, it too is a good diagnostic tool and will make a start into today after creating a system restore point,to the three of you many many thanks for your quick and expert replies, if I am successful in curing the problem I will come back to this post with a reply, again many thanks for all your help, ray

hi, thirty minutes using shellexview and l0bit unlocker was found to be the culprit, I downloaded this program months ago and is brilliant at shifting locked files/folders when uninstalling programs, I used it last week to unlock a couple of obstinate folders, the first time since downloading it. shellexview let me disengage it and immediately right click was back to instant,the only down side is that unlocker no longer shows on a right click command and has to be restarted from the desk top icon, this is no great hardship. the cure being found I thank you all again and hope that this post of your responses will help anyone in the future with the same problem, many thanks ray
