    Default Windows explorer crashes in windows 8 RP

    Hi all,

    I am running windows 8 RP. But there is a problem. Windows explorer always crashes constantly if:

    - I start it with Win+E

    - I start it from task bar icon

    I can start explorer if I right click explorer item and select any of the "Frequent" items or if I have shortcut on my desktop. However, explorer crashes each time I right click any file or folder.

    How about your opinions?

    This definitely sounds like an installation corruption. I would start over using this procedure. I would start by downloading the ISO file again using a good Internet Download Manager to ensure the downloaded file is not corrupt, then burn to a new DVD and reinstall from this.

    Thanks for answer. Is there any way to fix except re-installation?

    Hi Ducauy. Welcome to our forum. That might be caused by context menu handlers. You can click the link below to find a fix.
    Right-click is slow or weird behavior caused by context menu handlers

    If this does not fix the problem, then a Reset or reinstall is the answer.
