    Mouse Right Button Click Problem

    Hi there,

    In the last couple of weeks I have a problem with my mouse right button (doesn't matter which mouse I use - Pad, USB, etc).

    When clicking on certain files, such as images, pdf, text files or ms-office files, instead of firing the menu, windows explorer resets (File Explorer shuts down, the icons on the desktop disappear for a moment, all open programs minimize and I find myself on the desktop) - similar to what used to happen when I "violently" shut down the Explorer through the Task Manager (which I never do anymore). This means I practically cannot use the mouse right button.

    Interestingly, this does not happen when clicking on folders, shortcuts or zip files, all of which are intrinsic to Windows. In these cases I do get the menu as supposed to.

    Does anyone have an idea what can it be and how to solve it?

    Looks like a faulty program was added to context menu and it crashes along with explorer as it loads when you attempt to activate context menu by right clicking .

    What you need is probably a context menu editor and try to disable all 3rd party programs you will find attaching themselves to it then enabling them one at a time to see which one holds the bug .

    I'd go for CCleaner then Tools > Startup > Context Menu , then try to disable all non Microsoft / non anti virus dlls and see if the menu will persist to crash .
