Help with slow to load right click on icons.

Hello,

I recently built a computer. When I right click on an icon it takes anywhere from 2-5 seconds to load the menu.

I notice other things like opening a Google Chrome window will take a few seconds, when it used to be instant. Or opening other Microsoft windows like the Network and Sharing Center will take 10 seconds to come up.

If I reboot the PC or log off and log back in, everything is fine for about a day or so, then it goes back to this slow sluggish way.

I've tried researching online and everything I come across talks about right clicking on the desktop, which works fine for me. Or it talks about using ShellExView to disable things in the menu when I right click on an icon. I disabled everything and that didn't do anything.

OS: Windows 10
CPU: Intel i9 9900k
GPU: EVGA FTW3 GTX 1080 Ti
RAM: G.Skill TridentZ 3200 Mhz 8GBx4
SSD: WD Blue 500 GB m.2
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master
PSU: Seasonic FOCUS Plus Series 850W 80+ Gold

Thank you to everyone that can help me figure this out!

It sounds like some task is running and stealing a lot of your CPU. have you look at the Task manager to see what else is running and how much CPU its using? if it only occurs in Chrome, it could be a Chrome add-on that goes haywire.

Task manager indicates I am using 12% of my CPU. This not only happens with Chrome, but any icon or folder I right click on.

The only add-on I have on Chrome is Ad Block plus.

Did you install some third-party antivirus tool? Try disabling it and see what happens.

I once had similar issues like you, and it was caused by the backup program I was using (Acronis TrueImage). My particular problem could be fixed with that ShellExView tool you already know about.

do you have any programs installed that are adding context menus? 7zip? winrar?

Yeah I do, and I used ShellExView to disable all of those. Plus just opening things like the Network and Sharing Center can take up to 10 seconds to load.

You are using Windows 10, correct?

Just an idea here, have you run a benchmark to get an idea of the speed your SSD is performing at? And do you have all of the appropriate Intel drivers installed for your system?

I've had issues like yours before but they were typically ironed out by cleaning out old sata drivers and updating to the latest.

The SSD benchmark looks good as far as I can tell.

I will mess around with the drivers and see what happens.
