    File Manager shuts down when I right click on a file.

    To start I was infected with numerous virus, spyware etc. because I accidentally clicked on one wrong button.
    After running Malawarebytes, Adaware, Spybot, adwcleaner, CCleaner, and Trident House Call, I finally got zero reports from all of these checkers.

    However now when I am using File Manager and I right click on file (any file) File Manager shuts down which leads me to believe that something was still missed, but what could it possibly be? I am at a loss, any ideas ?
