weird explorer problem
everyonce and awhile if I right click in explorer or my computer I get the kinds ms words that a problem has happened and kindly will shut down. well I check the details and its in shell.dll and app.dll. Then I debug and that helps or I have to reboot. Its starting to get really annoying.
Ive did a virus, and spyware sweep with no results. I attached the bug report if any you can read greek go for it.
edit. I've did a sfc /scannow, reapplied sp1 and 2. without a fix.

no kidding right now I'm just too lazy. but more so just want to know what is causing it. all google searches have come up with a win 98 registry key that is corrupt.

Do you have an image that you can just restore the DLL's.

Do you have any programs installed that adds stuff to the right click menu..Sounds like one of them is corrupted..picaview for example adds a new menu for previewing images..If the dll that picaview uses for that gets corrupted windows would crash if you right click on an image..Think of any programs you have installed around the time this started happening and uninstall them..See if that fixes the problem..You can always reinstall the programs if thats not the reason..
