I've recently discovered that my Windows 7 Shift-Right-Click Context Menu in Explorer doesn't work any more. Whenever I try to Shift-Right-Click, nothing happens. This is on folders, files and the Taskbar. Normal Right-Clicks work fine. I thought it might a Shell Extension, so I uninstalled the only two custom shell extensions I have (Link Shell Extension and Hash Check Shell Extension), but I still can't get the Shift-Right-Click Context Menus working. The problem is that I don't know when it stopped working, so I'm not sure if there was maybe a update or maybe a application I installed that caused this...
