Something in your right click menu is causing Windows 8 troubles. Start by focusing on lesser known software which may be resident in the right click menu and if you can't figure it out, begin to focus on everything that may be in there. Something there is the cause and if you're diligent enough, you should be able to isolate which one it is. Here is your tool:

ShellExView - Shell Extension Manager For Windows

You're welcome. With that tool I posted above, there is no reason or need to manually edit the registry at all.

Since you aren't familiar with the registry, I highly advise not to manually edit anything there but if you are interested in how to actually do so, you can type regedit in the Metro start screen. It will show up.
