    It does not matter if you disable it since this is a shell extension for your right click but I am not sure if this is a sytem file, I looked in mine and it's not there. 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

    i already done full scan on my laptop when i have this problem.. thought it must be some virus that make it slow.. but i guess i over-trust built-in window's AV to scan for malware too.. thank you for ur suggestion... =) will do that later..

    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
    3. On the list, you'll see some of the entries with pink background, those are installed by the third party software
    4. Hold down CTRL Key and select all of them then click on the red button on top left corner to disable.
    5. Click on the Options again and select Restart Explorer
    6. Now try to right click on desktop to see if it fix 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.


    Please post back the result.
    I made an account on this forum soley to thank you. Earlier I was on an uninstall crusade, uninstalling programs left and right trying to find the source of my 5+ second desktop right-click lag. I ran MBAM and MS defender scans too. Nothing worked, but your solution did. Thanks a ton.

    Hi,
    Great forum for win 8 users.
    I too had the same problem with right click context menu taking more than 10 seconds. Tried the ShellEx view. Though it reduced the items in the menu but didnot sort the problem.
    Noted on this thread some where that Bluetooth device fwas a probable suspect.
    Disabled the bluetooth from the context menu from Shellex view but still nothing happened.
    Finally disbled the blue tooth device it from the device manager. It worked.

    Thanks a ton.
