    If you are fired up for trying out Linux before you get your CD fixed, I'd try this.
    i can have alook around and see what i find, it will be something good to try. although all those together sounds like trouble :) thanks

    thanks for taking the time to help me. i have just fixed it, a few weeks ago i disabled PGPser (PGP) in services, i have reset it to manual and everything works correctly again.

    i got the new Sarge 3.1 Debian from a magazine cover the other day, i tried to install it on a friends PC who's not into computers to see if i'd like it, but his rubbish hardware wasn't supported. would you recommend installing it?

    sorry for going off topic, but as the problem's resolved, can i show you this link you probably already know? http://fromtheshadows.tv/ it looks like they will soon have a completed show about the recent defcon. thanks again, i like your forum, i'm only really into PC security, that's why i like Windows. but, i know i can learn also from people here. ;)

    So you disabled the fading menus?

    Do you have a floppy drive? Does the drive spin up when you right click?

    i've got a good idea;

    Windows is a bloated OS, remove it and replace it with any of the *nix environments.

    Persoanlly i use puppy Linux and SuSE Linux. Puppy is a very small download size (roughly 50MB), and it's a Live Distro (meaning that it doesn't have to be installed to test it).

    Basically goto puppy linux site, download the cd *.iso,burn to disk, restart computer and boot off CD, notice how fast your menus now appeer?

    Seriously though, Windows is one of those software environments thats a pian to fix problems like that, especially considering there is no error message.

    Sometimes when you install software it will also install some extra items to a right click menu, e.g. WinZip i think adds some items to a menu (when browsing in explorere after a right click).

    You may have added software like this in that past, then uninstalled the software but windows is still looking for the data of the unistalled software to display in the menu.
    It's a wild wild guess, but hey, it could just be the blind leading the blind.

    context main problem

    hi, i just joined here hoping someone might help me? i have a malware free PC, but when i right-click a folder there's some kind of conflict, it takes about 1/2 minutes for the menu to appear. i have tried disabling everything on the context menu with a program from Nirsoft called ShellExView, but it didn't disabled them. it's not an AV/AT conflict either. i use alot of different windows' themes too, so i tried the classic theme, but it didn't help.

    i'm going to try using Filmon and just filter explorer.exe's activity. and then maybe see what's being loaded into the memory, can you help me with that?

    do you have any ideas, please? i don't know what else to try :( thanks.
Working...
