I had some explorer crash too on right click, but it's not happening now, and i don't know how i fixed this. I remember I uninstalled and re installed different versions, multiple times.

To pinpoint this, do your crash happens on right click too ? You may encounter the same problem I had.

I am sorry about the enigmail part, I'm not using it, I'm only using the sheel ext' to decrypt files, and Kleopatra to store the keys, as the software that use the keys rely on Kleopatra.

I'm having several problems and I can't tell if they're related or if they're separate problems, and I'd be very grateful for any assistance.

Previously I was using GnuPG v1.4.9 and Enigmail on Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) with no problems, so my initial setup should be good (public/private keys exist, GPG home directory set, etc).  I uninstalled 1.4.9 and installed gpg4win v2.2.1 (validity confirmed by GPG signature and sha1sum).

The first problem is that, after the install, all of the gpg4win Windows shell extensions that I've tried so far (ex: "Sign and encrypt", etc) cause Explorer to stop responding/crash.  I've repeatedly uninstalled and reinstalled using the defaults, but still the shell extensions cause a crash.

The second, possibly-related problem is that after the upgrade Enigmail says it can't find the Enigmime service.  Uninstalling, reinstalling, and the other suggestions I've seen don't help, and I don't see anything jump out at me from the logs, so I'm wondering if some core component that all these tools rely is not installed properly.

I've tried everything I can think of, and web searching hasn't brought me any luck; do any members of this community have any ideas for things I can try?
