Explorer Crashes When Right Clicking on the Desktop

September 16, 2010 Leave a comment

I had a computer that everytime you right clicked on the desktop Explorer would crash. Using ShellExView I looked at all the “Context Menu” types.

This time I did not get the error.

You can also just delete the following key:

Error in Exchange 2010 EMC after demoting a DC

  • An error caused a change in the current set of domain controllers. It was running the command ‘Get-Recipient -PropertySet ConsoleLargeSet  -ResultSize ‘1000’ -SortBy DisplayName -RecipientType ‘UserMailbox”.

The fix is to close the EMC then browse to C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\MMC & delete the file called “Exchange Management Console”. Opened the EMC again & no error.

The two links below had the solution:
