Re: Right-clicking in OS shell causes Explorer crash and restart

Do you have any error messages? No messages, we can help you. Feel free to post errors here.The most important: the appname and modname which are given when you see the error report. However, this may be spyware which also affects explorer.exe (They are not intended as Internet Explorer). So first of all try to install an antispyware and scan it this should help you.

Re: Right-clicking in OS shell causes Explorer crash and restart

Frequently my windows explorer crashes, particularly when external usb hdd is connected. it is not even possible to transfer my documents to external hdd for example, or conversely, that it displays the contents of the ext hdd and it returns to the left window of Explorer, this one is farm, the desktop icons disappear (not the wallpaper) and then a few seconds after respawn, but not the browser window.

You can resolve this problem by creating a .Reg file and stick the following 5 lines then run the file as administrator.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Classes \ Wow6432Node \ Local Settings \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ Shell]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Classes \ Local Settings \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ Shell]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ Shell \ BagMRU]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ Shell \ Bags]

Nothing serious, it's a bug, this problem occurs when you customize folders. you can easily resolve this problem by clicking Folder Options then selecting View tab and click Reset Folders. But the next change folder view it will happen again. The above solution is more stable but if you are not comfortabl playing with the registry then this is for you.

Re: Right-clicking in OS shell causes Explorer crash and restart

I had the same problem as soon as I installed Shareaza, has noted that when I deactivated the shareaza the freeze bug goes away, I turned it on and I installed limewire shareaza and surprised to see that the bug has returned lime wire transfer and re-freeze over surprise over bug but the solution seems to me even when very strange, in my opinion when I was downloading I was overheating the CPU that caused the freezes but hey it's not very clear to me all this.
