Cannot right click on drives without runtime errors
Somehow or other I have a shortcut on my desktop for my data disc E and when I try to delete it I cannot open the right click menu. I get the horrible Microsoft VisualC ++ Runtime Library error "that the app has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusual way."
Windows Explorer then stops running and does a restart. The same problem occurs when I right click my C: drive and E: drive icons in the My Computer window.
Although I don't have a floppy disk drive the icon for it also acts in the same way.
When I backup data eg Favorites Folder and burn to a CD the computer does not play it back although the data is on the disc and will play on my laptop.
I am concerned that if I do a reinstall of Win 7 the underlying problem may not be fixed if it is a conflict with a non Microsoft program. I have done all the recommended things, Fixit, scannow, misconfig a minimal startup and everything else I could find but to no avail.
Is there a kind genie out there to offer some advice?

Yep, I've tried that also and like all the other things I have done showed everything is perfect. However, I have just read the thread below from Ben946210 of 4 weeks ago which is the same error and see his was caused by Acronis still hanging around after it had been uninstalled. I uninstalled that pesky thing weeks ago but it is still all over the registry so I will tackle that next and see if it is the culprit.
