Throwing a guess..

Try switching to the "Windows Classic" and try the context menu...

What are the results?

Sounds like a display driver issue to me. Try re-installing your display drivers.

I allready tried that way before this post. Iv already tried it twice, but it does seem to be related to the BSOD, becouse it happened right after, virus scan shows up nothing: using MSE + Spybot Search & Destroy.

Easiest place to start is the System File Checker

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
