When i try to open any file in any application (using a open file dialog) this application blocks for about 10 Seconds.
I tracked this down to the (numerous) DropBox extensions.
So i use sysinternals Autoruns to switch all these 24 Explorer Extensions off. That works fine, unless a few days later they will come back. This seems to happen with every minor update of DropBox.
How can i come around this?
