Hello to the More Knowlegeable . . .

Everything was working just fine on my Win/XP system until - - 
In Win-Explorer, whenever I right-click on a file or folder, then I get a dread message that "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close" ; the error points to kernel32.dll and it is often followed by a similar message regarding Dr.Watson when it tries to diagnose the problem.

The expectation following the right-click is a list of actions that are possible against the subject file/folder.
Apparently there is something wrong with the link to one of the actions.
System restore is IMpractical and toooooo much has happened since it was first noticed.
Surely there must be a way to identify and test each of the items which should appear in the expected list of actions.

Thoughts and advice appreciated as to how to diagnose the action associated with the underlying problem and correct/delete it.

Many Thanks,,
