    My problem is right clicking causes the "crash" where Explorer seems to restart.
    Another way around that is the keyboard shortcut that seems to work fine for whatever reason. Single-click on a program to select it, then press Shift-F10 to bring up the context menu.

    Using the ShellEx program... http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.html
    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.

    Yes... there seem to be a number of 'applications' that can interfere with Windows Explorer. Spybot (unfortunately) seems to be the cause of the difficulties with Windows Explorer (under Windows 10). But Uninstalling wasn't quite the end of the story. Dear old Spybot (no.. actually quite new) also has a 'hidden startup' running in Windows 10 to 'see if it's still there' !!! And it goes through a rigmarole with you on each 'Start' to get you to re-install. Pesky.. little Divil... So... Open up 'Task Manager' (and 'click' the start-up tag) and 'disable' ... "See If Spybot..." entry. Now you are probably free of this nuisance and - for me - Windows Explorer reverted to behaving itself impeccably. Good Luck! For you it might not be Spybot, but some other 'intended useful' piece of software. It's all become far too complicated. DOS is dead, long live the King!

    1. This program does not require installation, just right click and run as Administrator
    2. From the menu, click on Options then click on Filter by Extension Type and select Context Menu. Also put check marks as shown
      Attachment 87580
    3. Click on the screen, Hold down CTRL Key+A to select all then click on the red button on top left corner to disable all.
    4. Click on the Options again and select Restart Explorer
    5. Now try to right click on desktop to see if it fixes your problem. If it does then start to enable one by one and repeat step 4 until the problem occurs again, that's the offending extension.
    Thanks a lot for the tip. It has also solved my issue.
    I have first of all filtered all the non Microsoft items and disabled. It has immediately fixed my issue. Thanks again.

    Win10 64bit

    Greetings and Happy New Year.

    Same problem as described. Brand new ASUS for Christmas, wanted to rename some images. Right click and crash. Found this forum. First eliminated AVAST, because seemed a possible suspect and was redundant to Windows Defender. So, was an easy-to-do.
    No joy.
    Then used the ShellExView. Was not able to disable all context extensions at once. Started with about a dozen. Joy.
    Now to determine which one. Started focusing on the new non-organic software. Fonix Phantom PDF was the apparent culprit. After uninstall, no more issues (for now).

    THANK YOU.

    Take good care,
    Sandy

    ps: made this profile to provide comment. Thanks again.

    WINDOWS 10

    But which is it?


    I do hope you come back and see this. Just wanted to say eternal thanks for this fix. Unbelievably appropriate. Windows 10 (ASUS R541U, brand new) was having this exact same problem. The guys in the shop thought it was the Microsoft Office 365 installment. It wasn't of course, and I got really really angry with them for selling me a faulty machine. Eventually I find this fix through you at home. Gonna go back to the shop and tell them their business.

    Hmmm.... on a further note, when the pinked items are re-enabled one by one, none of them seems to be the culprit and the file explorer works fine until I reboot. Then it's back to square one. If I just leave everything disabled there seems to be no problem. So how to find out which is the culprit?
