    Updated to Windows 10, v2004 - Right clicking freezes window


    As the title says, I just updated to win 10 ver 2004 (from 1909) and this problem renders my PC practically unusable.
    When I right click on a folder or file, the respective window freezes (and no context menu appears). I can still open other programs but, from the moment this happens I cannot even left click on any file or program even in another window, without the window freezing. If I reboot, I can now left click, but at the moment I right click, the problem appears again.

    These are the things I tried (following, among others, some answers I found in tenforums):
    - running Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth
    - running SFC /SCANNOW c:
    - disabling all services: System Configuration -> Services -> disable all (having hiden all Microsoft services)
    - disabling all startup items: Task Manager -> Startup -> [I disabled everything]
    - disabling all non-Microsoft context menu items using ShellExView
    I did all the above and rebooted but the problem remains

    Only booting to safe mode seems to work....

    Can anyone offer some insight?

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Windows 10 forced download

    ^This, then reboot and go to manually update windows. Find KB3035583 in the list of available updates, right-click and "Hide this update" so it doesn't get installed again next go around.
