Sorry for the delay, I wanted to try to be as thorough as possible
in the steps I was testing.

Before doing any of the tests you suggested I uninstalled gpg4win,
scrubbed references of "gpg" from the registry (list of keys removed
is available if needed", deleted the Start Menu folder, etc. The
only thing I didn't do was delete the environment variable pointing
to the [non-standard] folder where I keep my public/private keys
(nor did I delete my keyrings).
Then I reinstalled gpg4win, and used the command-line to "--verify"
the digital signature of a file, and it worked perfectly. But when
I did right-click on the signature and tried to verify, Explorer
crashed again. :-( Then I tried the tests you suggested:

This worked fine.
This worked fine.
>gpg2 --clearsign x.txt
This worked, it even brought up a UI window named "pinenter" for my
password (which really surprised me given that the rest of the UI
was CLI. :-)
Do you have any other suggestions I can try?
