Thanks for the list. You can zip and upload unsupported formats. I see MyWinlocker is listed. It is currently known to cause problems. See these threads:

Posts #7 & #8 here: Will upgrading to Win 10 fix issues with explorer.exe crashing in W7?

And the rest of this thread: copy and paste not working

RE: MyWinlocker removal. I've never used MyWinLocker. If you run into a problem when uninstalling first check runiing processes ans services and stop anything that you can identify as belonging to MyWinlocker then uninstall it.

Other than that use the force removal option in Geek Uninstaller.

Geek Uninstaller > Highlight MyWinLocker then from the toolbar select Action > Force Removal.

EDIT:

Note: You need a reboot to complete the uninstall. Test your external drives after the reboot.
