I had the same problem, but found mine to be due to an installed program (I
presume, although SP2 could have added one of the things I deleted.) The
solution I found lies here: http://windowsxp.mvps.org/slowrightclick.htm I
edited the following registry key: HKCR \*\shellex\contextmenuhandlers I
then deleted some of the keys? inside that folder. I deleted Winamp, WinRAR,
Open Encryption something, and like 2 other keys that didn't look like they
should be there. I can now delete, right click, etc without any problems,
hope this helps!

PS: (You may also consider using the program further down the page, though
myself I find editing the registry keys easier)
