Download the file and save to your desktop. Right click the folder and unzip into a new folder on your desktop.

Open the folder you unzipped and run the Explorer++.exe exexutable.

In the window that opens right click on a drive. If you see a context menu take a screenshot and post it please.

Try browsing a few folders or files using Explorer++ and try right clicking them.


Thanks Callender. I already did that.

Here's a direct link in case the screenshot is not showing:

Did I do it wrong?
If not, what info does that tell you?

thanks

Try this for possible issues with Spybot S&D shell integration (right click menu).

Open Spybot (right click on icon and "Run as Administrator")
Click "Advanced User Mode"


Select Settings and click "System Integration" tab
Uninstall "Windows Explorer Integration"
Click "Apply" and "Ok".
You can also launch settings using the icon in the System Tray.

Reboot when done and see if that fixed it!

If not continue with posting screenshots from AutoRuns (Explorer tab)
That worked!

I can now Right Click on the C drive without W.E. crashing! BUT is that a permanent solution?

What was Explorer integrated with before? And how do I know it won't be integrated with it again?


thanks a lot Callender

Thanks a lot Thrashzone.

I didn't see it on my home based machine as the host is blocked. Using a different machine I see it!

Thanks.

RE: Screenshot. Suspect that Spybot is the problem.
I only noticed it crashed on Right Click since installing SpyBot. But Explorer would crash on Startup before I installed SpyBot.

I suppose that means Explorer was integrated with SpyBot! - which means my previoius qustion must now seem like a stupid one!


OK thanks

Yes Spybot doesn't play well with explorer if you integrate it's context menu entry (right click menu)

That solves the right click crash issue. If you are getting other crashes when file browsing let us know.
