Explorer not refreshing/right click menu reset
Today i noticed something that is bugging the hell out of me. First, my desktop or explorer was freezing everytime i tried to create a new folder, restarting fixes this for awhile.
Now when i restart, after lets say a half hour, windows stops refreshing itsself. I have to manually do it, if i delete a folder, move or create one i have to refresh to see it is there or gone.
Another thing i noticed, i tried to extract some files using winrar and the right click settings are gone, i used to be able to right click and extract, or right click and scan a folder with my anti virus and all that is missing.
I just formatted about a week ago...just got all of my games install i do not want to format again, it was very time consuming installing everything, i am running windows 7 64bit ultimate.
I searched google, no luck, i tried settings the folder max cache to 12000 and i also tried disabling windows search, neither have fixed the problem. No idea how to get everything back on the right click menu.
Thanks for your help.

Hello Welcome to SF,
I suspect it's an issue with Context Menu. Download ShellExView
The rule is to disable non-Microsoft context menu handlers *one-by-one* and verify if the problem is solved. If disabling one does not solve the problem, undo the disabled item and disable the next non-Microsoft handler. Do the same until the problem is solved and finally identify the culprit. Scroll right to see the Company Name column in ShellExView.
Hope this helps,
