Right Click Context Menu-'New' command not working

  Jlen 18:26 16 Aug 2017

When I try to create a New Folder on right click within a Folder within Explorer the mouse cursor changes to the'sand timer' and Explorer crashes and kicks back into the Desktop.I have tried about every fix I can find from sfc /scannow(no errors)to checking the context handlers registry key. I created another user account that fixed the problem, not really wanting to go the whole hog and transfer files/apps etc is there a solution to fix it within my current profile? Event viewer log citing the issue below. Thanks in advance....usually good at fixing stuff but I'm beat on this one!

When you created another account/profile did you have the same security software loaded? I ask as I had a few problems with this years ago with Avast.

I suggest downloading Nirsoft's ShellExView v1.97 from here . Extract it and run. Once opened select 'hide all Microsoft extensions' then check the list it shows.

Checking the other profile as well will give a good clue to what program is doing this.

'hide all Microsoft extensions'

Should have added that this is found under the OPTIONS tab.
