Why is it that when I try to open a file with 'Open with...', using the right hand mouse button, I have to wait upto 3 minutes for the dialogue box to appear. It is becoming rather tiresome.

Well, LAMINA, you had the perfect solution. I disabled Norton Antivirus and the 'Open with..' box appeared within 5 seconds. What can I say but, A very Happy Easter to you and very many thanks.
