|nvshext.dll - Explorer crashes when you right-click on a folder.|
Right click works in the main files and folders pane (right), but in the lefthand pane, Explorer crashes 100% if I right click. I disabled NVIDIA CPL Context Menu Extension using ShellExView and the crashing immediately stopped. Thanks Nirsoft for solving this major headache.

|Shell Extension Name:||NVIDIA CPL Context Menu Extension|
