Hello Welcome to SF !!

You could try this ShellExView

The rule is to disable non-Microsoft context menu handlers *one-by-one* and verify if the problem is solved. If disabling one does not solve the problem, undo the disabled item and disable the next non-Microsoft handler. Do the same until the problem is solved and finally identify the culprit. Scroll right to see the Company Name column in ShellExView.

If that didn't help

Download this attachment CompMgmtLauncher.bat Save it under C:\Windows\System32\

Go To Start > Type Regedit and do a search for CompMgmtLauncher.exe

Mine was located here.
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Manage\command]

Under this key you will find a line that ends in CompMgmtLauncher.exe
Change the exe to bat and Manage should now work.

Hope this helps,
Captain

Tried System Restore in the safe mode 7 did not work. I use Norton IS 2010 so I was told it does not allow it to restore unless you completely uninstall it. I do have a backup copy of my disk that i ran through W7 Pro. Should I use it?

First thing I would do is dump your security and get Microsoft Security Essentials, used by many members and it does not give unnecessaary problems.

I would uninstall it, try a system restore, if it works or not, just install the above Anti Virus. and malwarebytes. In the opinion of many, better security. In the opionion of all, its free.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware : Malwarebytes

If it does not work, but I think it wii, we go from there.

I don't know if that is true or not about Norton IS, but if it is, I would surely replace it altogether. I dislike Norton in any case, but I would find that intolerable.

I just tried to save it to System 32 & it states i don't have the rights. I am the only one on this computer & am the admin person.

What did you try to save? You may need to give yourself permission or run as administrator.
