ShellExView – Shell Extensions Manager For Windows

After recently running ccleaner, Windows Explorer froze whenever I right-clicked on a folder. A google search turned up a nice little util, ShellExView, that displays installed shell extensions and controls which are enabled and disabled. Part of the info listed is the File Extension. In my case, I looked at non-Microsoft entries with File Extension of Directory. I disabled suspected culprits one by one until I found the offending extension. After installing the tool, the whole process took less than five minutes. ShellExView saved me from reformatting my hard drive just to get Windows Explorer working again.
