    Hi everyone. I think there is a bug or something in Windows 7 SP1. Create a folder on any drive on your computer, let's for example use C:\Testfolder. Create another folder inside this folder and then name it "2" or any single character - only one character. The result will look like this -> C:\Testfolder\2. Now, Right-Click on the folder named "2" -==- the PC will freeze or Lock-Up and show that Explorer.exe needs to restart. This happens for me in both Windows 7 SP1 x86 and x64 and I was hoping that someone else can test and confirm that this issue exists, if not, then I need to find out why my PC locks up and freeze. Can anyone test this too?

    Thanks

    Doesn't happen here, but if there is an error it might have been corrected in an update.

    Also, third party things which add stuff to the right click menu could cause it, as well as virus scans etc (possibly)...

    Nope, No problems here.
    I followed you exact example and created it as you pointed and right click works fine no lockups or issues.
    I tested a windows 7sp1 x64. Note, sp1 was added not slip streamed.

    These can be a nightmare but, you might need to look into a context menu editor.
    That is what the R click is called aka context menu...
    I cannot remember where the one I use is but, if I find it I will mod this post.

    The tool I used to clean and speed up my context menu was made by Yamicsoft called Windows 7 manager. It has tons of tweaks and is well worth the money. Context menu manager is the sub-tool in Windows 7 manager but, there is a free Context menu manager but, I use the Yamicsoft one as it is easier to follow and understand.

    Good Luck

    Hi, do you perhaps have Winmount, MagicISO, TuneUP Utilities or UltraISO installed on your system? I've just uninstalled those utilities and the problem seems to have disappeared. I suspect that Winmount is the cause of this. Are you maybe using it? If not, then can you maybe tell me what applications appear in your context menu when you right-click on folders (I just want to see if there is some sort of correlation between the utilities I use and the utilities that you use and the problem we're both experiencing)?

    I've installed WinMount and WinISO.
    I test it when I'm back at home this evening.

    What do you think?

    No, I don't think WinMount is a virus, it's an image mounting application like daemon tools. It can't be a virus as we've found the problem. Ok, so this is it. Winmount is damn nice, but it really sucks BIGTIME. It has lots of bugs, from version 1 up to now, and I update mine regularly and everytime I update I get the new s#it that comes with it.... Very, very, very poorly programmed application. I can actually notice a response time increase on my PC too, it's much faster now. So this is what was causing the problem... No I really don't know what application I can use in the place of WinMount, because very little applications out there can mount rar, wim, zip and 7z files.
