This just started today (I think), and it is weird.

 

I click on the start button, and then right click on Computer, and select Properties.

 

The Control Panel main screen comes up for just a second, and then closes and Windows Explorer restarts.

 

The computer itself does not reboot.  The desktop just goes away and comes back, as if the computer has rebooted.

 

I have run Malwarebytes and a Virus Scan on the computer.  Both found no problems.

 

I am currently running a quad core AMD A8 processor and Windows 7, with 8 GB of ram.

 

Confusing.

May be a context-menu handler issue. Have a read here

Actually, that is not exactly what is happening and really wasn't relevant.

 

Thanks anyway

 

I took a short video of the problem, but I can't upload it.

 

I attached a link to a Youtube video that shows what it is doing
