Hi,
Simply do the following steps:

1) Open a command window (Start->Run, type in 'cmd' hit enter)
2) To remove image preview, type and hit enter
     regsvr32 /u shimgvw.dll
3) To readd image preview, type and hit enter
     regsvr32 shimgvw.dll
4) To remove media preview, type and hit enter
     regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll
5) To readd media preview, type and hit enter
     regsvr32 shmedia.dll

Try and write these commands,and test your explorer.dont write all the commands,i advise you to carry out these steps one by one and go to your explorer and try right clicking a file.Tell me the results.
 Good luck!

'regsvr32' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

I tried them all.. i get the same orror for some reason it doesn't see regsvr32 as a command... I believe this could possibly be a path issue?

how about trying this explorer.Give it a try and see whether the explorer will crash while right clicking the file.

unregistering those .dll's does not seem to fix the problem

Problems related to right-clicking are most likely due to a poorly written context menu handler. Download ShellExView at http://www.nirsoft.net and install it. Any non-ms handlers will display in a pink row. Disable all the pink ones and see if the problem is still there (sort by company to get all the pinks together).

If that fixes the problem, re-enable the pink ones one by one until you find the culprit. If not, start working on the Microsoft handlers.

Good luck.
