indeed, l only came across the settings someone used to stop the possible issue, it didnt hurt to extend the possible solution to the desktop.ini files.

You're right. Fresh ones will most likely be created by explorer anyway but if any were problematic - they're gone.

its possible, tho l did take a gander at the contents of the ini files, and they seemed to contain the google sync path within them so lm not so sure.. truth be told it seemed the only folders that had desktop.ini's in them tended to be ones l shared between other users. but quite a large portion of folders l do share between a group of ppl.

just an update.. touch wood.. so far everything has been running fine with no crashes.. however l dont wish to talk too soon, havent had a chance to mess around on the laptop yet however will keep things under observation for the time being, tho hopefully l have found the culprit, tho l did disable a few extra context menus as well (as there was suggestions on my googling that suggested that context menus could be part of the issue..).

laptop explorer crash seemed to happen ever backup l did each week while copying over to my external. so far lve not had an explorer crash there either tho will observe as well.. only thing l need to keep an eye on is if it BSODs again.. tho lm hoping lve possibly resolved it with driver updates in addition to my fixes to the explorer issue.

after keeping things under observation for a couple of weeks now lve not as of yet had any explorer crashes on either my PC or Laptop, not any BSODs yet on my laptop.. for the time being l will mark this issue as solved.

though l am curious, does UKV add extra context menu options to right click? l recently noticed force delete and file information options when l right click files and folders, no idea where it came from and l havent exactly installed anything apart from program and windows updates for stuff lve already got installed. be nice to get rid of the options seeing as l need a licence to use them.

Sorry for the late reply. I've been away for a couple of weeks.

RE: UVK context menu entries. You can get rid of them but the "Force Delete" option comes in handy sometimes.

Anyway here is a UVK script to remove them. Download the zipped file and extract it and run it.
Remove UVK context menu entries.zip
Altenatively launch UVK and choose "Run Scripts" from the Welcome Screen and then "Import Script From File" then browse to the extracted file and run it.
