    Hi,

    Again, just joined to say thank you for this. I have a new PC, and noticed this right click problem (was taking about 2 seconds).

    I downloaded and used ShellExView, and the problem was Ad-Aware Shell Extension.

    An Accolade for Topgundcp.


    Recently (late November, 2015), topgundcp suggested ShellExView to solve a serious problem I was having with Windows 10 File Explorer. Every time I right clicked on a file or folder in File Explorer, the system simply responded by closing FE. Thus, the context menu was completely unavailable for file and folder actions. I downloaded the tiny program (in about ten seconds) and ran it immediately. It found tons of third party program extensions. I perused the results and disabled a number of entries. Viola! (pronounced "wal-la") my File Explorer problems were over!!!

    This is a pesky problem that I've been dealing with for over a month. No other forum has been of any help -- only Topgun. My hat's off to you, dude. You RULE!

    Hi there, having the same issue with a .wav file i exported from FL studio. no problems form the program up until this point after following norepi's instructions for ShellExView, and when i try to test if the issue was resolved, i get this:
    Click image for larger version
    And now i'm at a loss.
    windows explore still restarts, and it's ONLY the .WAV file that triggers it

    1. This program does not require installation, just right click and run as Administrator
    2. From the menu, click on Options then click on Filter by Extension Type and select Context Menu
    3. On the list, you'll see some of the entries with pink background, those are installed by the third party software
    4. Hold down CTRL Key and select all of them then click on the red button on top left corner to disable.
    5. Click on the Options again and select Restart Explorer
    6. Now try to right click on desktop to see if it fix your problem. If it does then start to enable one by one and repeat step 5 until the problem occurs again, that's the offending extension.


    Please post back the result.
    I did try this method, but after I enable the apps again, the problem is still there. It does work after disabling it though.

    Just registered to let people who came here via google know that for me the culprit was "Shell extensions for sharing".

    Thanks a lot topgundcp. I've also joined mainly to thank you for this solution.
    I've recently been given an AMD PC with Win 8 Pro installed, Office 2007 and Sophos virus protection.
    There are only 2 non-Microsoft extensions and the culprit was the Sophos components for extending windows shell with SAV scan version 10.7.2.49

    As soon as this was disabled File Explorer started working better.
    The green ribbon still takers time
    The left column of folders does not open quickly
    Images in the thumbnails do not appear quickly
    Not good enough yet.

    I have discovered a solution to my problems on the Microsoft website:

    Slow Green progress bar in File Explorer - possible solution - Microsoft Community

    Slow Green progress bar in File Explorer - possible solution

    I've had a problem with File Explorer since upgrading to Windows 10, where I get a green progress bar that crawls along slowly, delaying the results of folder display such as the Download and Documents folders. It could take up to a minute before the folders would display.
    I tried many different things as possible solutions that I'd found when searching the web:

    1. SFC
    2. DISM
    3. various options in File Explorer

    Nothing worked for me.
    I then thought perhaps there's a problem with the indexing. I was about to rebuild the index under the control panel\Indexing\Advanced options, but by chance went into the Modify option which looks at indexed locations.
    Here I noticed there were pointers to my D: drive to a series of folders which are not there any more. They appeared to be from an old user profile, with a comment beside them saying 'Unavailable'. I unticked these, clicked OK to save the changes, then restarted File Exlorer and found that I no longer get the slow green progress bar when I go into my Downloads and Documents folders.
    I had upgraded to Windows 10 Pro x64 from Windows 8.1. I don't recall if I had this problem with Windows 8.1, but I think I probably did. Also, I used to re-direct my Documents and other personal folders to D\:username, but now I redirect them to D:\Users\username, and think somehow the old location was remembered by Search.
    It worked for me. Hope it works for you.

    MY REPLY
    Thank you MTCSLtd,

    I was recently given a Win 8 Pro PC by a friend who had cleaned it up leaving only Windows, Office 2007 and Sophos security.

    File Manager was behaving infuriatingly and stopping me doing work.

    After several modifications following advice forums this is the one that has done it.

    Going into Control Panel\Indexing\Advanced options and then the Modify option showed that there were numerous, now non-existent indexing locations used previously by my friend.

    I unticked these and chose the new location and all is well, including instant loading of thumbnails.

    Thanks hugely.
