    Windows Shell Common Dll crashes

    Every time I go to control panel and then hardware and then to touchpad settings I get a crash after making whatever change I want and clicking OK to finish and close. I don't know what the shell common dll is or why it fails but it gets old. Any input will be appreciated.
