Windows 7: Right click drive in WinExpl causes WE to crash

Right click drive in WinExpl causes WE to crash

This just started. When I open Windows Explorer, then right click on any drive, I get an error message that says Win Explorer has stopped working and eventually closes. Can this be fixed? I am using Win7-64 and reinstalled Windows about 3 months ago.

This may or may not help but won't hurt.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I tried as you suggested, but it did not find anything and the problem still persists.

That's strange.
We need more information. Could you fill in more of your system specs. Look at my specs and get a idea of what can be added.

Are you still dual booting?
What Windows 7 do you have?
Are you using a admin account?
Are you overclocked?
Are you using Raid?
What Tune Up program are you using?
I might not be able to help you but this information will help others help you.

Are you still dual booting? -- No, I am not dual booting
What Windows 7 do you have? -- I have Windows 7-64 Pro
Are you using a admin account? -- Yes
Are you overclocked? -- Yes
Are you using Raid? -- OS is installed on two SSD drives in Raid 0
What Tune Up program are you using? -- All I use is CCleaner (Edit: Forgot, I am using Ultimate Windows Tweaker)

I'm not sure I understand what is happening. The problem went away for about a week, and now it is back. That is, when I right click on a drive (after opening WinExplorer), WinExplorer stops and then closes. If I left click on a drive and expand the directory tree, then right click on one of the subdirectories, it works as expected.
