CLVDShellExt.dll - Windows 10 problem - right click on any shortcut did not work - shellexview helped to fix it

Right click on a shortcut on the desktop - context menu would not come up.
If shortcut is inside an explorer window, right click wound crash explorer.
MSFT answer desk could not fix, after many hours of scanning and fiddling.
They recommended to reinstall Windows!!
Ran shellexview x64, hid MSFT items, then started disabling...
Got tired of one at a time, so began 3 at a time:
Disabled the following 3, all at once:
Cyberlink...context menu (extension name was blank)
NvAppShExt Class...NVIDIA... context menu
OpenGLShExt Class...NVIDIA... context menu
This fixed the right click problem!!!
Then I enabled each of the above 3, ONE at a time, until all 3 were enabled.
The end result is that although all were enabled,
apparently putting everything back to the original state,
the right click problem did NOT come back!!!
Strange but true - just disabling and re-enabling fixed the problem.
