The context menu is causing Windows Explorer to crash.


Navigate to "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ ContextMenuHandlers" in regedit.exe, and back up the whole ConxtentMenuHandlers key.


Then start with deleting the empty values under this, then delete the values one by one testing your right click on the desktop after each. When you finally remove the right one that stops the crash you can restore your initial backup and just remove the one problem value.
