I keep getting "Verify ID has encountered a problem and must close", an annoying popup window that then wants to be reported to Microsoft. It only occurs when I right click on a file, folder, application or the My Computer Icon. Occasionally I get a Intuit/Quickbooks error that is similar on both computers. Both run Windows XP and both are protected and updated regularly with McAfee and Spy Sweeper. I have run Malware Bytes and various registry cleaners and software tools without any detectable viral activity. Any thoughts? A Google search turned up one post on GeekstoGo regarding the use of Combo Fix but that seemed to be something that I was advised to leave to the experts or at least to handholding by the experts.

Thanks for the links, I am scepticl about Uniblue since they have had uninstall issues and spyware issues in the past. Thanks for the help, nothing like spending a beautiful Saturday inside fixing the desktop. I guess that why they gave us laptops and wireless.

I didn't suggest the advertising links that appear on any webpage...just the seemingly factual content.

I wouldn't use Uniblue for anything else...and even then, I seek a secondary source.

Hello nephromancer,

Try using ShellExView to isolate the problem with the context (right-click) menus.

See "Resolution, Method 2" in the following article ("Right-click is slow or weird behavior caused by context menu handlers"):
