    Made a profile just to leave this comment: AVG was the culprit in my case, it seems to me that anti-virus programs seem to be the ones causing most of the problems, so I would use ShellExView as the others said and start by disabling the anti-virus context menu options. If that doesn't work, then you get to do them individually like topgundcp's link said.

    Uninstalling MalwareBytes seemed to have fixed it for me.
    Tried everything and saw this solution and uninstalled Malwarebytes and everything works fine. Malwarebytes is looking into it. Had me run some diagnostics and sent them the reports. Regardless, don't think I'll go back to using Malwarebytes.

    Same Problem, different solutions

    It seems that there's a bunch of misbehaving shell extensions for Windows 10, but...
    Here's what fixed this for me...
    Using the ShellEx program...
    Through the process of elimination I disabled the SpyBot Search & Destroy Shell Extension, and, instant SUCCESS.
    Be Aware, I disabled this once, enabled it again and it continued to work properly until a reboot, then it was right back to where it was.

    You know, I've been chasing this same problem for weeks, and one time before. Each time I get a different solution. Currently it is the nvidia cpl context menu extention, a few days ago disabling google stuff fixed it and it came back, and the first time few months back I uninstalled mozilla to solve the equation. And I see all of these other elaborate schemes to fix this problem (none from microsoft of course). The most helpfull device to identify it is this shellexview program. That lets you disable one at a time the programs that may cause this. But why I ask has this so many solutions if it is not somehow related to Windows itself?? I guess it of course be bad programing by the other software products. I just don't know. Just my 1 cent worth.

    hey everyone

    I had the same right click issue, but uninstalling the McAfee antivirus solved not only this problem but two more I had where the "update and security" section under settings was just blank and the one where windows wont connect to group policy Client services.
    Everything is solved now :)
    jus uninstall any third party antivirus guys .....

    As I posted earlier, I disabled nvidia related file and that fixed my problem. But upon contacting nvidia they pointed out that anything related to the video could point to the video card files. That would make sense. But I just about stopped everything else but that. So not really sure if that was it.

    Long time lurker. I want to report that I just did an upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. After uninstalling MalwareBytes, Refreshing explorer and opening context menus don't close explorer anymore. Thanks for the tip.

    I downloaded the ShellExView program and did what Topgundcp said. Found out that "Spybot S&D" made my explorer.exe crash.
    My solution to this was pretty easy, since in the program i can just turn off the shell integration and the problem was solved.
    Thanks for the help Topgundcp

    This program does not require installation, just right click and run as Administrator

    My problem is right clicking causes the "crash" where Explorer seems to restart.

    Turning off all contextual menu items using CCleaner hasn't helped. It seems right-clicking executables and some aliases to them cause the crash while others are fine. Unfortunately, ShellExView is one of the problem applications.

    To do a virus scan on a downloaded app I need to place it in a folder - right-clicking it works with Malwarebytes and Avira and avoids the crash where the screen momentarily goes black and Explorer seems to restart.

    Maybe going to Win 10 64-bit will help - updated from Win 7 32-bit. It seems carryover "stuff" from earlier installs might be related.

    Just thought this info might help in troubleshooting.

    I finally registered on this forum just to say thanks for this thread! I had a brand-new computer that's done this since we got it, and it has been bugging me like crazy. I finally had time to do some digging on it, found this thread, and got it fixed.

    On this PC, I used Nirsoft ShellExView (just cuz I like Nirsoft products), and found extensions for the Open Office software that it came with installed were highlighted. We have MS Office 365 anyway, so I just uninstalled OO, and it's all good now.

    Thanks so much!
