Question explorer.exe crashing

Hi all!

I'm using Windows XP SP2.
explorer.exe always crashes when right-clicking on a folder, file, and even Start menu.

This *only happens when logged on as an ordinary user (limited account).
When logged on as administrator, this doesn't happen; everything goes normally.

If I make the user account an administrator account, then this goes back to normal. But for security sake, I intentionally want to limit this user account as an ordinary user.

Any solution to my problem is very welcome.

Thanks in advance!

Thumbs up Re: explorer.exe crashing (solved)

Problem solved.

The culprit is one or some of programs activated on right-click (context menu).

As suggested on Windows Xp: Explorer.exe Crashes On Certain Accounts - KnowledgeSutra, using ShellExView, I disabled all programs except the ones from MS Windows.

After this, right-clicking on a folder or file doesn't crashes explorer.exe anymore.

Thanks!
