    Right Click Explorer Crash Solved
    I thought I'd start this thread in hopes it might help someone in a situation similar to mine. I found no help on this issue and had to resort to contacting MS support for help.

    The Issue:
    After installing Service Pack 2 for XP, right clicking on any of the desktop icons results in explorer.exe crashing, followed by Dr Watson crashing.

    The Platform:
    Biostar motherboard with integrated video, sound, nic, modem and AMD Athlon XP processor.
    Plenty of RAM and Hard Drive space (512mb and 40gb)

    Environment:
    Fresh install of XP Pro. No other software installed.

    Solution:
    Install Service Pack 2 in Safe Mode.

    Conclusion:
    Windows File Protection seems to be blocking the update of certain files. Why it occurs only on certain systems is a mystery, but both the customer machine I have in the shop and a friend's computer (Intel Mobo with Celeron processor) exhibit the exact same symptoms.

    Disclaimer:
    This was performed on a clean system with a fresh install of XP Pro. There are quite a few known issues with SP2, so this may not apply to your particular situation.

    Hope this helps nonetheless.

    Is the error caused by axshlex.dll, version 1.4.9.1024 ?

    Find out what is causing the errors. Often it just a buggy dll. It should tell you.

    Are you using a cracked version of Alcohol 120%? I read the "DVT" crack is buggy.
