    computer freezes when I right click a file.

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per the issue description your computer freezes after right clicking on the file. The issue could be if there is some system file corruption or there is some third party conflict.

    Let’s boot the computer in Safe Mode and check if issue reappears. Safe mode is a diagnostic mode that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. The words
    Safe Mode appear in the corners of your monitor to identify which Windows mode you’re using. You may refer to the article mentioned below to boot the computer in safe mode.

    Change startup settings in Windows 10

    If computer works fine in safe mode then try to perform clean boot and see if it brings any difference.

    Putting your system in Clean Boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. You need to follow the steps from the article mentioned below to perform a Clean Boot.

    How to perform a clean boot in Windows

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135/en-us

    Note: Refer "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting" to reset the computer to start as normal after troubleshooting.

    There might be a chance that there is some system file corruption. So, I would suggest you to run
    SFC scan and see if it brings any difference.

    System file check is a utility built into the Operating System that will check for system file corruption. The sfc /scannow command (System File Check) scans the integrity of all protected operating system files and replaces incorrect,
    corrupted, changed, or damaged versions with the correct versions where possible.

    How to use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows 10.

    • Press Windows key and
      X at the same time.
    • Choose Command Prompt (Admin) from the context menu.
    • In the command prompt, type sfc /scannow and hit Enter.
    • Exit command prompt.

    For more information refer to this link:

    Hope this would help. If issue still persists post back with current status of your computer and result of the proposed suggestion, we will be happy to assist you.
