    So, what would be a better solution ?
    Uninstall AVG outright, or disable AVG Context Menu ?

    I had an issue with avg not working which also caused my file explorer to hang then crash and restart. after looking through some info on avg not working i went to repair avg which then made everything work again. i have only had the file explorer issue for a couple of days but have no idea what cause avg to break. my issue is fixed now so all you would have to do if you have avg is go into settings>>system>>app&features scroll down to avg(there might be 2 of them you are looking at the one that does not have protection by it) click modify and click repair when the promt comes up. mine initially failed the repair but made avg start working again which also fixed the file explorer issue.

    I've been having this issue for two weeks as well. There must have been an update that effected the context menus between AVG 2016 and Windows 10. I found this topic after using ShellExView to systematically disable third-party addons. AVG was the third and fourth ones I disabled and my problem was solved.
