I've continued to try to isolate this problem. Steps I've taken:
1 Created a test folder on the desk top with two items in it. A text document and an Xcel spreadsheet.
2. From the open folder, I highlighted the text object. When I try to right click the folder hangs...when I try to close the folder the message comes back "This program is not responding" I then force the close and send an error report.
3 HOWEVER...the same thing happens happens when I try to delete or print the file when it HIGHLIGHTED from within the folder. It hangs. I can e-mail it, copy it, move it but I can't print or delete it. I also can't open the "file" portion when the file is highlighted. I'M DOING IT FROM A TEST FOLDER TO AVOID HAVING TO REBOOT LIKE I DO WHEN I'M JUST OPERATING FROM THE DESKTOP.
Yes, I put Old in front of ContextMenuHandler on all the ones I could find. Coudn't find <ProgId>. I ONLY changed context menu handlers. The hesitation in between left click and response is not on all actions. Actions from the toolbar appear to be intstant as does opening some files. Others hesitate, and it stops after I do a drag and drop, folder to folder. This is something brand new.
Good thinking...Thank you so much for your help! Two final questions before I hit "Accept Answer"
1. You have been very helpful so how do I rate you, and more important how do I tip you an additional sum for all your help?
2. Do you have a suggestion for backup software to replace Rebit which we can back up per our schedule (like when we're sleeping)?
Just about done here,
