Having trouble with windows explorer in Windows 8 desktop mode
I am experiencing trouble with the Windows File Explorer in Windows 8 Desktop Mode. Whenever I right click, the explorer stops responding. This problem started after I moved to China. I bought the laptop in USA. My skype is also crashing.
The Windows Explorer problem started a couple of weeks ago. it got resolved but now it has again started. The skype issue just started.
I use Windows 8 (not pro). I have an HP Envy Sleekbook 4 Ultrabook.
Intel Core i5 along with 4 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD and a 32 GB SSD.

From your description, the file explorer works in the safe mode.
Hence, we can declare that this can be an issue caused by a particular app.
Try creating a new administrator account and check if the file explorer works fine. If it does, move your files from the old account to the new one. If you are not comfortable with this, install the old account personal apps one by one to understand which
one might be causing the problem.
Hope this helps
