    chkdsk /f c:
    say y
    reboot
    then do an offline file defrag using perfectdisk from www.raxco.com (free
    trial version)
    then do a defrag again using the quick option
    then do a normal ms defrag

    Hi Jim,

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

    Right-click is extremely slow only when Network is enabled:
