Performed an SFC Scan for verifyonly and (happily) it did not find any integry problems. Interestingly though, I can't right-click to start command prompt as administrator. Luckily, I already am logged in as Admin. However, even using startmenu cmd [ctrl+shift]Enter forces explorer.exe to restart...
Still suffering same issue, might perform the full SFC scan and fix; but is it worth doing this if the verifyonly function found no errors?
Another interesting development - The rightclick context menu functions fine on the other user account on the same system (non-admin). So it is an error specific to my login... which is an administrator login.
I've now completed the full SFC Scan and it has found no errors.
Also, I tried altering another account to Admin rights and rightclicking for context menus, and this worked fine too. So it is something linked to my own account, regardless of whether it is administrator or not... I've done a full Avast scan, and that's clean too.
Can't confirm a full fix yet, but I think it might be something to do with an installation of MozyHome. Removing and rebooting to check...
Anyone else suffered this type of issue with MozyHome?
