  • Hi,

    Typically this problem is caused by non- Microsoft Explorer Shell Extensions and you can use “AutoRuns” for Windows to troubleshoot. You can disable all of the Non-Microsoft shell extensions and test to see

    if the problem occurs and then re-enable them 1 by 1 to see which one causes the problem.

    Download “AutoRuns” For Windows from the Microsoft TechNet Site


    1. Start Autoruns

    2. Click Options / Check Hide Microsoft Entries

    3. Press F5 or click the Refresh Icon

    4. Click on the Explorer Tab

    5. Uncheck All items in this List

    6. Exit Autorun

    7. Logoff and Logon to the Computer

    8. Test Windows Explorer

  • Hi Spencer,

    Thanks for your reply!

    That seems to be the list of autoruns which all from signed vendors

    Nothing suspectable there in the list.

    Any other way to check from the root cause?
