Right Click Problem

I have a vb 2008 application that has uses several context menu on right click.  When I exit the program, then whenever I right click on anything, I usually get an error message that Windows Explorer is restarting.  This happens everytime when exiting the program and is only solved by restarting the computer.  The application is shutting down properly or at least it disappears from the Task Manager.  I am convinced it has something to do with the context menu code.  Anyone with ideas?

Did you add context menus using the packaged ContextMenu control, or did you use the Win API to register your own? If you used the former, then it would be odd that those controls would cause such an issue.

Yes, kaufmed......I used the control that comes in the vb.net toolbox.  I agree it seems odd but since the problem is with right click I assumed that was the case.  Is there some chance that the code I am using is somehow, someway causing the problem?

Going to lunch right now so will be away for awhile.  Tks,

I finally wound up creating my own context menus using a groupbox.  Seems the problem of right click causing Windows Explorer to restart has disappeared.  Some problem with either how I was using the context menus or the code was being created.  Thanks....this question is now closed.

No solutions were offered.  The question probably covered a very broad spectrum which made it difficult for anyone to respond.
