right-click context menu appears only after big delay in XE 2018 build 770 and 780

Hello,

thanks so much for this great tool.

I found that beginning with version XE 2018 32bit build 770, the right-click context menu appears only after quite a big delay when clicking on files. When clicking on white space, FreeCommander's own context menu appears after a regular delay of at most 1 second (even less when FcContextMenu64.exe has been loaded).

This happens again in build 780 and in the current beta, but not qhen reverting to build 740 (here, the context menu for files appears very slightly more slowly than in Windows Explorer).

The affected system is Windows 7 Pro SP1 64bit. It doesn't seem to affect FreeCommander on Windows 10 Pro 1803 64bit.

I hope this helps in making FreeCommander even better!

Best regards.

Does the issue exist when you right-click in Windows Explorer?

Sorry, I've not made myself clear enough.
Approximate response times of the right-click context menu when clicking on files or folders:
  • Windows Explorer: almost immediately
  • FC build 740: ~1 second
  • FC build 770/780 beta: ~10 seconds if FcContextMenu64.exe is not running (100% load on 1 CPU core during that time), ~3..5 seconds otherwise
This seems independent from the type or content of the right-clicked file or folder.

Have you tried to deactivate your AV program for testing?

Yes, I did. Also, I stopped all other non-essential tasks and ran FC build 740 and 770 back to back. Result: the context menu of 770 and 780 is very noticeably slower than that of 740.
Must be something else in my particular system, if nobody else experiences that.
