Windows 7: Windows Explorer freezes on right click

11 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Edition 64 bit
Windows Explorer freezes on right click

Explorer.exe crashes when I right click on a folder. I've run Event Viewer and see Application Hang Event ID 1002 (101). That doesn't tell me anything about what is hanging as far as I can determine. Any advice would be appreciated.
