    Windows XP Sp1 (all updates) is my current OS
    123GB (files)
    40GB (main)
    20GB (linux)

    256DDR PC2100
    AlthonXP 2Ghtz(1.67)

    when i right click a file the system crashes. basically

    i thought that this would be something that i installed recently. i uninstalled the newest programs that could be causing a fuss. no luck.

    second was that maybe extensions(winamp, winrar, PGP) were over clogging the menu. so that right clicking the menu would take s ages to load thus crashing the system. ihave been into winrar and removed all the menu enteries. this for a second worked but then a couple of minutes later it was back to normal system crashses.

    send to menu. this was the next idea i came up withh. maybe my old send to menu entereis were casuing a problem. i remembered that i had set a link to a network drive that no longer was there. so as i couldn't delete these files at all i could only move them outa the folder. i moved them intothe recylce bin. this deleted them and cleared the send to.

    still not working. right clicking a folder or even deleting a folder causes the system to crash. just hangs like an endless loop. restarted explorer.exe brings me back. but interacting which folders

    i have ran Anti-virus scans and adware programs alike to remove any bugs that ccould be causing this. still no luck.

    any ideas wouldn't go unread.
