"Q: Windows 10 Explorer crashes when I right-click ANY file.
When I right-click on any file, any file at all, explorer locks up and eventually re-starts. Looked for updates, can't find anything. I recently updated from Windows 7. Probably it is one of the apps that tries to come up on the menu. I'm not sure how to debug this. "

This content menu handler can load from many different areas in the registry, and it can be a difficult task for a end-user to pinpoint which extension is causing the problem.
