Right click takes forever to bring up menu!

    Right click takes forever to bring up menu!


    I have Windows 8.1 x 64 on my HP Compaq CQ58.

    Whenever I press the right click to bring up the copy, cut etc. menu; it takes forever to do so! All I see is the busy blue doughnut cursor. I have used the sf scannow and DISM commands but they found nothing wrong! I used Avast and Malwarebytes to search for infections but none were found.

    Anyone know what could be wrong?

    WOW! Thank so much. It used to take up to 70 seconds for right click to work and now it is instantaneous! The one I disabled was TODO. Do you know what on earth it is?

    I hope the problem does not return.

    Google it and I found this file belongs to a company called TODO in chinese. Maybe you should scan your PC with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - Protect, Detect & Remove Malware From Your PC
