Delete slow
When I right click a file to delete, it takes 20 seconds for the box to open
to where I can delete the file. How can this be sped up. Vista home basic.

You didn't really give us any information about your system, so all I can
offer are some general suggestions.

Problems with slow right-click functions are usually caused by third-party
software that shoves entries into the context menu. The easiest way to
troubleshoot this is to disable these third-party (non-Microsoft) entries
with the free ShellExView program.

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

Manage the context-menu entries for folders, drives and Namespace objects -

Another cause for slow deletion is if the hard drive is extremely full
and/or no maintenance has been done; eg., deleting temporary files with
Disk Cleanup, etc.
