  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.

    In security section you can config your context menu option.
