When I right-click on a file in an open-dialog it makes the underlying application crash "once-in-a-while". This happens in many applications such as Total Commander and Visual Studio . The application don't crash each time, but when they do it is before I click any item in the context-menu. I looked at the call-stack and I see nothing interesting to pinpoint what is the cause of the crash. This started to happens a couple of months ago so I don't know what I could have installed that causes this problem. My context menu contains items related to TortoiseHg, TortoiseSVN, SandBoxie and a couple of other usual apps like 7-Zip, etc. I never noticed any crash when using the context menu directly from Windows Explorer but I think it could be crashing more silently than other apps.
How can I identify which item of the context menu is causing these crashes ? Is there any crash log I could look at somewhere ?
Update: I have uninstalled all applications (Avast, VLC, etc.) adding items in the context menu and the crashes still happen. I noticed that it is a lot easier to reproduce the crashes in some apps (Total Commander) than other (IPLab), not sure why.
