    Many thanks for the fix - my problem turned out to be the "NVIDIA CPL Context Menu Extension".
    Disabled via ShellExView, right click on my D drive now and all works fine.

    Thank you!


    Thank you so much for this. My right click is normal again. You're my hero

    Download: ShellExView - Shell Extension Manager For Windows
    NOTE: download version 1.97 or later, else Restart Explorer won't work in step 4


    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.

    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.
    In my case it was Avira's 'Speed up' tool that gave me the trouble of blocking when right clicking outside the file area. I think the additions in the right click menu are the first candidates to give trouble. Thanks for all idea's! My problem is solved...

    So ...
    MalwareBytes is supposed to protect your computer.
    SpyBot Search&Destroy is supposed to protect your computer.
    Avira is supposed to protect your computer.

    But instead they break your computer!
    Fail, fail, and fail.

    I disabled Format Factory context menu and all is good now.

    Same Bug...
    I try to keep my system well organized, Nirsoft's ShellExView only shows 15 items, all behaving well.
    KPM's 15 Mar 2016 post hinted at a possibility. I uninstalled GlarySoft's Malware Hunter Pro and the issue went away.
    It's odd how I never had any issues with Malware Hunter Pro before the last Windows update. But then, Malware Hunter Pro has had its share of updates too.
    Anyway, a quick uninstall fixed it.

    @topgundcp and @sthomas128 Thanks!!
    Installing ShellExView and disabling SpyBot Search&Destroy in the context menu fixed my issue.
