All the errors I see in the CBS.log file are for windows update collections it couldn't find. Are you seeing other things?

Have you rebooted the machine since this error? If not I would reboot and see what happens.
Otherwise I would try is a restore point if you have one available.
This issue returned a few days or so after the OP. I was unable to re-visit until now. I have done several re-boots since and a system restore point to a time prior is not available. I have updated the OP to include an additional anomaly. Any other advice is welcome.

I can't find the Registry Key for items in the Explorer Background Right Click Menu. But I suspect there is something funky there. If you right click Explorer background and they all close it could be that something isn't handling the menu creation correctly. For example a recursive loop that eats up all the stack, causing the guard page message.

I anyone knows the Explorer Background Context Menu Key could you post it?

thx M_A - I do have a system 'tweak' in place that hides an explorer tool bar and appears upon mouse-hover (I recall I learned of it at this site). It's the toolbar that has 'Organize', 'Burn', 'New Folder' etc. It does jitter a lot if I move the cursor across this area and have to be really delicate if I want to select one of those items. Although this has not been an issue in the past I mention it here in case there is relevance to this problem. In any case, I prefer to disable it but cannot recall how I did it in the first place.

Usually something like that is a Registry tweak. Do you have a dedicated folder for .reg files? Or perhaps you could search *.reg

I spent 1/2 hour searching and I couldn't pick it out.

I think that it might be this one:

thx Callender for the lead. That was the mod. I 'undid' the mod, restarted and the explorer windows are restored. However, as I suspected, it does not resolve this issue.

If "this" is supposed to be a link, it's dead. If you mean this problem we are on then I don't understand.
