I know this is a rehash, BUT: Anytime i right click on a folder, or drive, or anything in windows explorer, I get the message that "Windows Explorer Has Stopped Responding." And then it restarts the explorer. I have followed all sorts of recommendations from this site, and I still have the problem.

I have scanned with Spybot (and elimjinated all the found problems) malwarebytes (eliminated 3 problems), and Norton 360 and still have the problem. I have booted into safe mode, and still have the problem. I scanned with registry mechanic; I have interrupted the boot, and told it to repair the operating system, I used SFC /scannow, and it found no problems. And I still cannot right click when in windows explorer. I even changed my mouse to a different type of mouse, and loaded new drivers for it. I restored to a previous date, and so forth. Anyone have any more suggestions? I have Windows 7, 64 bit.
Thanks

GOT IT.....I went to internet explorer again, and did a reset under the advanced settings. This time it solved the problem. I have no idea why it worked this timek and not the other times.
