explorer context hangup WinXP/SP2


New Member
I know this has been reported. I posted my own solution in the xp newsgroup last night after finally figuring out that eraser was the culprit, by using ShellExView. But I thought it was because I was using an older version. Wrong. 5.7 does the same thing with WinXP SP2.
5.6 runs fine on my Windows 2000 SP4 machine. I know I could disable the shell extension, but I use the context menu for >90% of my eraser use.
Any suggestions?
Many thanks.

Is it too obvious to suggest unchecking the "Enable background (slow) entropy polling" option at Edit>Preferences>General? I had the same problem but found the solution posted several times elsewhere on the forum.
