    Remote desktop crashes when right click icon on desktop

    Hi friends i have 2 computers one is laptop and the other is desktop.Both are on windows 10 with genuine windows license and 100% updated. I am having a weird problem and it started recently. When connected to laptop via remote desktop, if i right click on any icon then the Remote Desktop Session disconnects and it says reconnecting and then it connects again automatically, but everytime i right click on any icon it just crashes/disconnects the session. Using my laptop physically does not do this or any lag, nothing bad happens when i right click on icons, the problem only occurs when using through RDC. Any help will be appreciated, Thanks in advance.

    Have you tried repairing your computer OS install with sfc /scannow in a command window.

    i have tried sfc/scannow
    i have tried DISM
    I have tried Shexview to check the context menu but nothing worked
    scanned pc for viruses/malwares but still no luck
    then at the end i reset my windows 10 without removing data and after then its working normally.
    thanks for the interest you took in my problem.

    Set your Windows install to not reboot on BSOD crashes and can you post the error message? Can you get into Safe mode and run the program "Whocrashed"? You can download that program from
