Windows XP - Windows Explorer too slow!

October 2016


I cleaned up my PC uninstalled unused programs and files.
Now every time I right click on my Desktop it takes about 50-60 seconds before the menu appears. The same problem occurs when I browse windows with Explorer.


I suspect that your registry is somewhat clogged and that your hard disk is fragmented.

Thanks to Ambucias for this tip!
