right click crash
Posted on 2004-10-13
explorer crashes with no error, then restarts (all open folders close, desktop reloads itself, explorer.exe disapear, then reapear in task manager)
Okay this just started happening, and it only happens on files, not folders, etc
so, it must be related to the context sensitive menu that comes up on right click for files...
to my knowledge, I didn't add any new programs that appeared in the right click menu during the last few days when this must have happened....I did install some windows updates, but I didn't notice which ones, they had something to do with gdi+
I googled it and removed a bunch of software, including winzip, winrar, stufit all of which had entires in the right click menu. but still it crashes.
Now I am pretty stuck, and need some help with what to try next. I am totaly fine with restoring my right click menu to it's previous state...is there some place where I can see what is in the right click menu and edit it? this seems like the next step to me, but I have no idea where to look for this.
