Slowed computer down

Negative Comment by axs221
about Folder View and Folder Menu, Chameleon Folder Oct 2011

I didn't like this one as much as Chameleon Folder or Folder Menu. This one slowed down my right-click menu in Explorer, because it loaded a Copy To... context submenu that was very slow to read folders. Good idea but I have too many folders for it to take its time on.
