    If you could give a little more info such as CPU speed, amount of RAM and maybe what kind of processes are running. Did this just start happening recently? If so, did you install anything around that time? Also, when was the last defrag?

    Try deleting all contents of your Windows/Temp folder.

    What's your anti-virus program? Try turning off the full time option and see if that makes a difference. I had a similar problem with McAfee about 1 years ago. Slowed the system down to a crawl especially with menu openings such as right click.


    Finally removed it and haven't looked back.
