We got a call for a slow machine. Specifically when they would right-click on the desktop to create a new folder it took a couple of minutes before the panel would show up.

After doing some clean up and installing some Windows updates we decided to also try a registry fix we stumbled upon.

When we got to the ContextMenuHandlers we removed the one entry for “Desktop”, and right-a-way the right-click on the desktop was working the way it should.

Lets us know if this helped you.
