    Angry XP Home Windows Explorer

    Having issues with Windows Explorer. It crashes every time I right-click on file folders.

    Even Dudebox Explorer, (for use with my Dell Jukebox MP3 player), crashes with I right-click on a folder to transfer to the MP3 player.

    I've tried what I know so hopefully someone can shed a little light on this problem. I tried to repair Windows with the OS disk and I am one crash away from reinstalling XP altogether.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I dunno about this one, install and run Ad-Aware 6, AVG Anti-Virus (Only if you don't already run an AV), and Spybot S&D.

    Well, I ran the latest SpySweeper and Kapersky Anti-virus. No joy at all. I can still drag files within Windows Explorer but no right-click.

    BUMP!


    Still no suggestions? I am still one step away from formatting and reinstalling XP.

    Even x2Explorer crashes. I've tried every tweak and setting I can think of.

    Red face Re: XP Home Windows Explorer

    I had the same problem and here's what worked for me. I had recently updated to Webroot's "Spy Sweeper" 3.0. In the options page, there is an option to "Add Sweep for Spyware to Windows Explorer Context Menu". This is checked by default. If you uncheck this option, the problem should go away -- it did for me. Spy Sweeper has released an update (build 129) to address this problem, but it is not entirely successful. Just uncheck the option.

    If you don't have Spy Sweeper 3.0 installed, look for another recently installed application that adds something to the right-click menu. Try to disable it.

    Hope this helps.
