Freeze when creating 'New' from Desktop

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

When creating a New item, folder, file, etc...
right-clicking over the desktop,
Windows XP shows the sandglass for 1minute 15seconds,
and afterwards show the menu.

Really annoying...

Any solution?

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

    Hi Ramesh.
    Thanks a lot for the info, it seemed to be
    the problem of slow when network is enabled.
    Cheers,
    Tomas
