Shell Problems Shell Menus ShellExView Utility NirSoft Utilities
rarext64.dll - When you right-click and select "Run as administrator" nothing happens.

I was having an issue where right-clicking to bring up the context menu and selecting "Run as administrator" would do nothing. After running ShellExView I disabled all of my extensions then rebooted and the context menu worked everywhere. I then re-enabled a few extensions at a time and rebooted until it quit working again. I discovered that WinRAR was the culprit.

The details of the shell extension that might cause the problem:

Shell Extension Name: WinRAR
Filename: rarext64.dll
Product Name:  
File Version:  
CLSID: {B41DB860-64E4-11D2-9906-E49FADC173CA}
