Right Click
« on: May 18, 2016, 02:34:33 PM »
I have over 20 years experience with computers, mainly Microsoft, but this is a problem I cannot seem to resolve.  These are some of things that I have done: 1. Deleted the default value in registry - BriefcaseMenu.  2. Replaced explorer.exe and shell32.dll with new files from the installation disc.  3.  Ran full virus scans with 4 different programs, there were no infections or PUPs.  4.  Ran chkdsk /f /r there were no problems found.  5. Ran SFC and again no problems.  The log shows that AFLDLL.DLL has been unloaded.  This problem only occurs when you right click on a drive, that is, any drive at that point windows explorer crashes.  I am not certain but I think the right click on a drive causes something to malfunction causing the .dll to unload.  I welcome all replies with possible solutions.  The OS is Windows 7 Ultimate.

Thank you!!!

From what info I've been able to find for that .dll is that in one instance it belongs to Iomega for a DVD burner.

Do you have such a program installed ?

Yes, I do have Iomega DVD drive installed.  With respect to safemode I did see if the right click on a drives would cause explorer to fail and it did.  I going to see if Iomega is in the context menu in Shell view.

Uninstall the program then see if right click still crashes Windows Explorer.

It may be that the program has become corrupt, so a reinstall is probably all that it needs - if that is the cause of the crash.

I removed the reference to Safe Mode as I realised it may still be loaded in that mode, so probably wouldn't have made any difference.

Thank You, thank you!!!  You have just solved my problem, I opened the Iomega directory and deleted the afldll.dll, right clicked each drive windows explorer did not crash.  Iomega was not in shellview.  Have you had this problem before, I never would have had any idea where that file was located.

Again, thank you very much for your help.

I'd never heard of the file and as it wasn't in my Win 7 Home Premium, did a Google search to see what it was related to.

When program DLLs get buggy, then a reinstall of the program usually resolves.
