Shellext message box error when I right click "properties" on any document

Posted on 2004-11-14

I have just freed up some space on my W2000 machine.  Too much it seems.  Now when I right click on a document, program, or shortcut and select "properties" from the shortcut menu I get a message box appearing that has a title of "Shellext" and the message is "Error: Camera Manager not registered".  When I dismiss the message box the relevant properties appear.  I do NOT have a problem when I select properties from the shortcut menus in "My Computer", "My documents" or on hyperlinks.

I have run Norton Windoctor but to no avail.

I assume I need to hack the registry somehow, but where do I look?

Thanks in Advance

    Hello Tony_Hasler =)

    Download ShellExView >>
    and try to Disable all the extra right click menu entries, check for the problem now ??
    if it doesn't happen now then re-enable them one by one and trace out the culprit one !!
