Original title: Right click freeze in windows explorer

I am having problems when using windows  7 when I try an right click a file, document or picture in windows explorer.
It feezes and states that windows explorer is not responding.
This also happens when I try and empty the recycle bin.  I have to restart the
laptop and everything is fine for a while and it all starts again.
Can anyone help with a solution to this.
Thanks

Hi John,

- How long have you had this issue?
- Did you make any software changes to the computer prior to the issue?
I’d recommend you to boot the computer in a clean boot state and check if that fixes the issue.
 
Booting the computer in a clean boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue.
If yes, you may have to contact the program manufacturer for any updates or uninstall and re-install the program.
 
Refer the following Microsoft KB article for more information on how to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7:

Note: After troubleshooting, make sure to put the computer to start as usual as mentioned in
Step 7 in the above KB article.
 
Hope this information helps.
