  1. Whenever I am in Explorer and right-click on a folder my context menu does not come up and Explorer "hangs". I am forced to go into Task Manager to kill the process and reboot. This only happens with folders and drives. Files are OK. I am running W2K. Thanks.

    This is most likely a stale shell extension entry in system registry. Have you improperly installed any programs lately? A registry cleaner (e.g. RegScrubXP, Norton WinDoctor) can probably fix this.

    Try MagicTweak from www.magictweak.com

    In security section you can config your context menu option.

    In your opinion, which utility is better?
    WinGuides Tweak Manager or Magic Tweak?
    Thanks!
