My new Win7 X64 laptop takes forever to popup the context menu for a file or folder.

Using ShellExView, I narrowed it down to "Windows x64 Shell Extension dispatch for Context Menus" in ccshelxbx64.dll. Disabling this shell extension removes the lag.

Now: is this shell extension strictly necessary and what do I miss when I disable it?

After 5s of google you would know that this DLL belongs to an IBM tool. You must decide if you need this or not.

Your link tells me that this is probably what should give clearcase context menus (it is a corporate laptop). This gives me a much better feeling that I can disable this particular shell extension. Thanks. – Christian Madsen Sep 29 '13 at 15:46
