themeui.dll - Explorer crashes when you right-click on a folder or drive.

I removed all non Microsoft Extensions and started re-enabling. I found that my Spybot-S&D Explorer
context menu Integration was keeping me from right clicking on my drives in Explorer. I rebooted and
retried X4. My PC now boots faster and I can right click to get my drive properties.I will continue to
test and will report this to Safer-Networking.
