right clicking a file - why the delay?

  Bansaw 14:59 03 May 2008

My computer is pretty fast; a 3.2Ghz, 1GB ram etc.

When I right click anything there is a huge delay.
For example, if theres an icon on my desktop and I want to see its properties, I right click on it and theres a 5 second delay until I see the context menu.

Any ideas?

WinXP Sp2.

Thanks man!
I had to delete the "Open With" folder in the registry in HKCR.... etc.
Thats saved me some frustration.
