Problems with RIght click & Double Click

i Have a problem with my computer.whenever i right click on any file anywhere
except an .exe(as of now)
it takes a good minute for the right click pop up menu to show up, during
that time the windows explorer's status
in the Task Manger is 'Not Responding' if i had right clicked a file in the
windows explorer.
this doesn't happen in the windows explorer alone, even on my desktop. it
happens everywhere.
and also double clicking to open any file also take a long time to open that
file.
i need help to resolve this problem. its really annoying
I have restarted, i messed around a bit with the 'Context Menu Handlers' in
the registry nothing seems to help.
i checkedthe perfomance in the Task Manger, the CPU utilization is normal.
Adware, Trend Micro, Microsoft Antispyware, HJT, tried everything. some of
the antivirus software found some viruses, i got rid of them but nothing
seems to help.

yesterday i downloaded ShellExview, this shows all the context menu
handlers, Microsofts and non microsofts as well. i have disabled all the non
microsoft context menu handlers and still nothing helped
my s/m runs on a windows XP pro.
i desperately need help with this one. i have already spent almost 2 days
and nothing has helped.

Right-click is slow or weird behavior caused by context menu handlers
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/slowrightclick.htm

Right-click is extremely slow only when Network is enabled
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/rcdelay.htm

Right click causes an error and crashes Explorer.exe after installing
Windows XP SP2

Then look at the Microsoft context menu handlers and disable them one by
one.

If your system is in a Network (SOHO or Domain), temporarily disable the NIC
card and try again. If that helps, refer to the 2nd link posted by Wesley
Vogel. Sometimes the problem is caused by a menu item that refers to a
network share.

Thank you Thank you Thank you guys so much. OMG.
i really can't explain how relieved i am.
it was a menu item that was referred from a n/w share.a long time back i
downloaded Nero from one my friends computer in the n/w and i think
uninstalled it too anyways the culprit was nero. i downloaded regscanner and
deleted the entries doe Nero
funny thing is that menu item doesn't show up in the right click pop menu.
and you know what ? the link that you guys posted '
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/slowrightclick.htm ' that is the first link i
started from but i never expected that it could have something to do with the
n/w so i never tried disabling the NIC and etc
anyways once again thank you guys so much. and especially Ramesh for nailing
it. you guys rock !
