    It could be a corrupt context menu option, so if that's the case, a computer refresh/reset should easily resolve it. If you're not comfortable with doing that, download CCleaner, go to the Tools, go to Startup, go to Context Menu, then remove some stuff under "Directory" and "Folder" that you think could be causing the problem.

    splitsecond, chances this can be your issue as third party software puts items in your context menu when you right click causing issues to explorer.exe common issue in past. Use CCleaner disable one at a time. One other choice is clean boot see if it happens there, this is if still have issues and SFC or Dism could not help you. Happens in clean boot could also be some conflict with a running process from third party application. http://windowsinstructed.com/clean-b...ndows-windows/

    SFC scannow returns with nothing to fix. Have to follow up a few days to see if the problem has been fixed or not. A couple of reboots and have not experienced the hangup, maybe it's fixed-or not. As said have to run Windows for a few days. Thanks for help. If it's solved have to give credit to someone for fixing the issue...?
    Hopefully that did it for you. If you choose to, you may rep members by clicking on the thumb up icon on the lower left of anyone's post.

    Hi, looks promising. No application hangs yet after DISM and SFC fix. Booted about 4 times already.

    The issue is back, BOOM! Try to run SFC /SCANNOW and dism to see if anything changes, then I suppose have to try with Ccleaner etc. One problem is when that the "hang" is not on all the time... Rebooted and OK.
    EDIT: Ran SFC /Scannow and it returned OK. DISM returned all succeeded, don't know if it repaired anything or not. Would be easier to troubleshoot if the error would persist on every boot...

    Hmm. Very weird indeed. Beginning to think it's a driver that's perhaps not loading correctly all the time. Did you look at DISM and scannow logs by any chance? How about System Events logs? Anything there?
