    File Explorer crashes and restarts on right click


    Seem to be having an issue all of a sudden. not sure how to fix it or even what might be wrong. when i right click on a disk drive in a file explorer it crashes then restarts. if your not sure what i mean i did screencap the experience and uploaded it here http://www.screencast.com/users/Otak...5-be8172d0205b

    Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

    These are typically related to some application you have installed that adds right click menus to Explorer. These menus crash because they aren't compatible with Windows 8. If this is recent, check your Programs and Features list for newly installed applications.
