Hi all, Just recently I have noticed that whilst right clicking on a file/folder in Windows Explorer, it seems to take an age before the menu comes up. The worst seems to happen when right clicking on .zip files, it just hangs, when I use Task Manager to close explorer, the start menu button and taskbar dissapear for about 10secs then re-appear and I go to try again omly for it to hang again. This is an intermittent problem that seems to get worst the longer the PC is on although sometimes it starts straight after a reboot or the PC is turned on for the first time.

I have a Toshiba A30 laptop with XP-Home preloaded (update to serv. pack 2).

Anyone have any ideas?

cheers

Oxie, thanks heaps for the link. Turns out it was Dr DivX causing all the problems.


Cheers once again!
