    If you still have the NDIVIA control panel in the context menu. Open it and click on Desktop and uncheck 2 items from there. You don't need it in Context Menu. You can also access it from Control Panel->NVDIA Control Panel.

    In Addition, run chkdsk on the external HD to make sure it is not corrupted. Use: Chkdsk /r option.

    I actually delete the Nvidia Control Panel in the Contextual Menu using the RegEdit. Then also try that ShexView program and Disabled all the Contextual Menu. Chkdsk /r option Return nothing wrong with the Hard Drive itself.

    Guess I have to keep using the NoSleepHD in the meantime.

    If there is no Solution, does anyone know if replacing it with an External Cloud Hard Drive will work? Does it go to sleep as well?
    I'm not sure about the all-in-one drives like WD My Cloud, but my NAS setup is a box that I supplied the drives for. In my case, WD Red NAS drives. I have five different drives mapped to the NAS, and the right-click context menu pops up quickly.

    I just ran a quick test using a Toshiba USB3 HDD, and I noticed no slow down in the context menu. I think the problem may lie somewhere other than the USB drive. Real frustrating, though, since your system is pretty clean. I'll keep digging and let you know if I find anything.

    I don't know why it doesn't do it on your PC, but did a quick Google on this Drive and it show that there a built-in Firmware that put it to sleep when idles caused it from overheating.

    But using the NoSleepHD indeed solved the problem, but I'm a bit worried the long term effect of it to caused it to overheat and making it spin 24/7 will shorten the life on the Drive.


    Thanks anyway for the solution. I may just use the NoSleepHD for awhile or just have to live with the slow ness of opening Contextual Menu and Recycle Bin.

    Hey Darkvelvet,
    I had the exact same issue as you did. Fortunately, I was able to fix it, and here's how I did it.

    Hold down the Windows Key and R. This will open up the "run" dialogue box.
    It looks like this: Attachment 32673

    Type the following in the box: regedit
    Click "Ok" or press the "Enter" key.
    This will open the registry editor.
    Attachment 32674

    Once open, navigate through the folders using this path:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers
    Once there, make sure you click on the drop-down arrow. You'll see a few folders.
    It should look something like this:Attachment 32672

    You should find a folder with the name of the graphics driver, in your case, NVidia.

    BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING ELSE YOU MUST BACKUP YOUR REGISTRY JUST IN CASE
    Click File\Export
    Name the file anything and save it anywhere you'll remember.
    If anything goes wrong, you can double-click this file and it will restore the registry to its previous state.

    Now lets get back to the NVidia folder.
    Delete it.
    To make the full change it may require a PC restart.
    I hope this helps! :)

    Bloody hell, this actually works, even without restart.

    I know I'm bumping an old thread, I just wanted to confirm this worked for my Win 10 SL x64. I deleted 3 keys, 1 for NVIDIA, 2 for INTEL HD (as I'm using Dual GPU laptop).

    Deleting NVIDIA's alone didn't work, so I went ahead and nuked the other two keys (Intel). It works....

    Hi everyone, I have tried playing with Shellexview, in order to fix a similar problem. It didn't work! But my problem is that I can not re-enable the disabled Shell Extensions. I have restarted the laptop, no change. For example, I disabled the WinRAR extensions and now I can not re-enable them. I tried reinstalling the software, it didn't work as well. If anyone has any ideas, I would be really grateful.

    Thanks popeye
    Step 5 in that post will not work in Windows 10 so here's an update.
    Please download: ShellExView - Shell Extension Manager For Windows

    1. This program does not require installation, just right click and run as Administrator
    2. From the menu, click on Options then click on Filter by Extension Type and select Context Menu Also put a check marks on the items as shown below.

      Attachment 33279
    3. On the list are the Shell Extensions with pink background, installed by the third party programs
    4. Hold down SHIFT Key, click on first item & then on last item to select ALL then click on the red button on top left corner to disable all.
    5. CTRL+ALT+DELETE->Task Manager->File->Run New Task and type explorer->OK
    6. Now try to right click on desktop to see if it fixes your problem. If it does then start to enable one by one and repeat step 5 until the problem occurs again, that's the offending extension.
    Thanks man It worked for me and it was intel extension for graphic driver. Thanks a lot
