on any icon, for a file, document, my computer or anything, when i right
click it to bring up the sub menu, it can take a good 20 - 30 seconds to open
up the menu. my computer is a fairly new laptop, pentium4 2ghz, 768mb ran
running XP Pro. Its only after my recent reinstall of the OS that this has
happened. any ideas on how to remedy this?

Right-click is slow or weird behavior caused by context menu handlers:
