Windows 7: Freeze on right click or browser close

Freeze on right click or browser close

At times my Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit version will freeze when I right click the desktop or when closing a browser.

I don't even get the "Exlorer.exe has quit responding" error, it just freezes and does nothing. I performed 3 clean installs and had the same problem every time. I'm running fewer programs than I had installed with the RC and I never had this problem with the RC.

This sounds like more of a hardware problem....

Perhaps a mouse driver?

So suddenly my hardware is no longer compatible when it was for RC?

Ah, I missed that.

Well, then perhaps not. Have you used the same disk each time to install?

Open command prompt (run as admin) and type this:
Code:
sfc /scannow

"Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."

Sorry, would post screenshot but I'm running in safe mode (I have no freezes when I use safe mode).

I have heard of this problem by many people using 64 bit version. I thought I might try the 32 bit version, but alas I cannot even log in to the Microsoft Store, since apprantly the temporary password they sent me in my e-mail is not valid.

Are you using x64?
Are you using x64 IE or regular?

Using x64 for Windows 7, but x86 for IE I think (whatever the default taskbar shortcut is).

Try the x64 version.

Hmmm, after reading threads with similar problems, I decided to try uninstalling Kaspersky. So far I haven't had a freeze yet, and before I would get them within 5 minutes of using Windows. I'll update later to inform you of whether or not I continue having problems. (Don't worry, I'm disabling internet while I am without protection)

I would also have the problem when right-clicking the desktop without IE open. Or when running another program.
