It drives me nuts, everytime I right click on a file and my mouse hovers over the send to option in the context menu, it freezes-pauses for 5 seconds before displaying this. Does anybody know how to speed this up??
The only thing I can think of would be to either clean up or disable the "Send To" menu. If you use it a lot, you can clean it up by hitting "run", type "regedit", then you can find all your send to items in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Send To. Just delete the ones you don't use.
To disable it altogether, add the following text to a file in notepad and save it as sendto.reg (or anything you like). Then open it, and it will ask if you want to merge it into the registry. Say yes, and it should work right away. If not, restart.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

I think the problem is that I have a shortcut to send to the a: drive (floppy) in my sendto menu and this might be slowing it down...I dont see this shortcut in my send to folder and I didnt see it in that registry location...any ideas on how to remove it?
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
