Today when i started my computer I tried to extract a .zip file and when I right click on it explorer.exe stop working. After some investigation and observations I realized that every time I right-click on a .zip .rar .txt .exe file the explorer.exe service stop working and I have to restart it.
First I though it was a virus, so I run Microsoft Security Essential but it froze when it was scanning C:/Windows/explorer.exe. Then I tried MalwareBytes but it froze too. I run SUPERAntiSpyware, it froze too. Then I run ComboFix but it did not find anything unusual. Then I run the comand sfc /scannow but it told me that everything is normal. Then I read that shexview can let you disable some context menu options but when I start the program it freezes too and it never loads anything. Then I read of a solution by deleting the contextmenu from the registry but before I try that I wanted to ask in here. Maybe someone have a safer solution or another option that I can try. Other options that I have in mind are, a System Restore, or a System Reload, but I want to try anything that is possible before taking any of those options.
Pd: I do not have any games on my computer so there is no way for SecuROM to be installed, also I haven't installed anything to the computer for a couple of days. But what I think that caused the problem is that yesterday the power went off and my computer was on, so it shutted down. Maybe some registry values or services get corrupted on the power outage.
