  1. file explorer crashes when i right click


    This is the first issue i have had with windows 10 ever since installing it in august. Ever since yesterday whenever i click on a file in the file explorer window it will gray out and stop working. Unlike the average hang this one will stay grayed out for about 5 to 10 seconds, my screen will go black for about half a second and than everything will be back to normal. I am thinking that this could be a virus but i have run a scan 2 times and nothing showed up. Other than the file explorer not working everything is fine. This is really weird since it only started yesterday and i have never had any issues like this in the 4 years that i have had my computer.

    :)

    File Explorer crashes when I right click shellex solutions does not work

    Whenever I use my right click in file explorer it crashes. I'm running windows 10 64 bit upgraded from 7. I've attempted the ShellEx solution mentioned previously and disabled all of the third party extensions (I made sure to restart explorer in multiple
    ways to make sure it worked) I found a couple of unwanted programs through malwarebytes but removing them did nothing.

    I'm largely out of ideas. I'll keep working on it but any help would be appreciated.
