Microsoft really bugs me.

When I click the cursor on my laptop nothing happens click 3 or 4 times & the file I looking for comes up.

Grey box then comes up, It says end now or cancel.

I have restored it to a previous date before this started happening, no joy.

I have defragged it, disc clean up, Eset in depth scan, Malaware bites etc etc.

Any tips please??

Many thanks.

does it happens with all files you try to open or just a certain type...?

Could be that you're running a bit low on the RAM front so everything takes ages, and then if you get impatient by clicking again you can get "end now" boxes.
If you CNTR-ALT-DELETE you get the task manager up. The "performance tab" goes red if you're out of available RAM. You can minimize the task manager (not close) and it should give you an icon in the tool bar at the bottom RHS so you can see if it goes to red when you are opening and experiencing this issue. Laptops traditionally are spec'd lower than desktops so this could be your issue.

Thanks both.
