right click on windows Explorer causes crash!  Sometimes when I try to empty the trash, it also blocks?  I use windows 7?

Right-click accidents are caused by third-party shell extensions. To identify the culprit, you must use a utility like ShellExView and disable context menus not Microsoft managers one by one (or disable items in a batch) and observe.

  • Right click on (some) files causes crash/restart explorer.exe

    Someone help with this one?

    In the last two days, my explore crashes whenever I do a right click on a folder (rename or get properties, etc.)

    Fault, click in the pane left Local disk C, the right pane then shows AMD, inetpub progdata etc., as usual. If I right click on a folder in the right pane, I see the long popup that allows me to remove, rename, open, or view the properties, it's good.

    If I right-click a folder in the left pane and right click on "Windows Explorer has stopped working", it reboots. Why is this happening?

    Back up your data and clean install Windows/restore to factory State. The alternative would be to take the machine to a professional computer repair shop (not your local equivalent of BigComputerStore/GeekSquad). Please be aware that not all shops are skilled at removing malware, and even if they are, your computer may be so infested that Windows will have to be properly installed.

    Have you installed Windows 7 device drivers for your make and model. If this is not the case, then go to the support web site factory and download Windows 7 drivers to a folder on your PC and then first install the drivers for the card mother/chipset, followed by USB, SATA, LAN, Audio and all other pilots.

    Find the website of your computer manufacturer support.

    How do you know if you have a 32 bit or bit 6 vrsion of Windows installed:


    BIOS updates: you should check to see if there was one, or sometimes several updates BIOS for the motherboard. Read (if provided) which solves the update. Sometimes a newer BIOS update will fix the problem. Read the instructions on how to your BIOS update/flash very carefully and be more you understand the process. There is a risk of a bad flash/update occurs which can make your system unbootable.

    Hi GloriaZF,

    What is the size of your external hard drive and what is the available free space? Open my computer-> right click on the external hard drive-> properties. You will not be able to copy more data if the disk is full, or who have less space compared to the size of the file you are trying to copy.

    You need to remove the order data to make the space more. Deleted data from the device USB will be permanently deleted and will not be stored in your Inbox, so take care while eliminating unnecessary data.

    I really hope you can help me with a problem I have on a single workstation at my office.  It is an accumulation of 32-bit Windows 7 running MS Office 2010 Standard.  It differs from other generations in our office because it is used by the head of the team of our accounts, and so it has a number of custom pieces of software that she only needs access (payroll software, etc.).

    Hi auggy, Andy,.

    Well... in a way, I am very disappointed, but we will respond to it.

    Andy, I checked and iCloud, Control Panel has not been installed on its terminal, but thank you very much for suggesting it :)

    auggi, when I got back on my colleague's PC, I thought I would test to see if the feature didn't always before considering saving data dumps etc, and it worked fine!

    I left it overnight with instructions for the lady who uses the PC to test this morning and see if it's all workers, and it is still, it seems that the fix does not immediately solve the problem of browser, but there later - maybe after a second reboot or something... very strange!

    In all case, this matter can now be considered closed, so all that remains for me to say thank you very much for your help, you are amazing :)

    All the best, very, very,.

    It looks like not the resolution of the screen is the problem, as you mentioned, it should be something else. I would also recommend that you check your video drivers to see if there is an update, because who could help.
