No menu and no context menu is opening anymore. Thunderbird is sleeping and does nothing.

In safe-mode it seems to work. Rearly faster than before. Which solution we will get?

more options

Given your results, we now have these questions: 1. What antivirus and firewall are you running on Windows? 2. With Windows started in safe mode and Thunderbird started *normally* (not in safe mode), is system slow, or fast?

more options

1. only Windows Tools, Windows Firewall and security Essentials 2. in Windows safe mode it seems that it's faster. The context menues and menues are opening earlier.

Because it is faster in Windows safe mode, something loaded during windows boot is slowing down thunderbird - perhaps MSE (Essentials). I've had MSE affect my performance, although I do not understand how the involvement of menus, I've not seen that.

Please see MSE item in https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird:Testing:Antivirus_Related_Performance_Issues to make the adjustment, and post your results.
