Hello,
Hope someone can assist with my problem that started a few days ago.
Windows Explorer closes each and every time I right-click a file or folder to delete it.

Has anyone encountered this problem?

Please advise ASAP...thank you

Hi douga7 and welcome to the DCT forum.

Dave is steering you in the right direction. This type of issue is almost always caused by a third party shell extension, so any recent new software installation would be prime suspect.

If you can't remember installing anything new recently, I suggest you download ShellExView here: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.html

ShellExView is portable software that will help you identify and disable non-Microsoft shell extensions. There's a pretty good description and guide on the ShellExView home page but just holler if you need any further help.

Cheers... Jim

Hey David,
Not that I can recall right off hand, but I'm going to try the suggestion response I received right after yours.
Thanks

Hey Jim,
Downloaded ShellExView as you suggested and it worked!!! It was the very first dll I disabled (from SpyBot Search & Destroy).
Really appreciate the help!!!
Have a good one.
