After mild Shell Extension Repair, continual uT crashes...


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, Uber new to this forum community..

So here is my issue...

For awhile I couldn't Right Click any of my programs without causing my Windows Explorer to stop working. Going online and Googling a fix, I found that my errors were the cause of a bad Shell Extension file, so I downloaded, ShellViewEx, and disabled the Erroneous Shell file.. However, I believe, not entirely sure, that it was since this repair that it hasn't worked. Now, when I go to use uT 1.8.1. I get "uTorrent has crashed. A crash dump has been saved as: C:\Program Files\uTorrent\12639-utorrent.80b5.dmp" I've used uTorrent for a long time... and this is the first time I've ever had troubles with it.

I'm running Vista Home Prem. 32 bit OEM.

But this doesn't just reside with uT trying to download BitTorrent and use that as a substitute, it too crashes or doesn't load period.

This is really frustrating and I'd loveeee some feed back, apologies in advance for any uBer newbness.


Yes, I've restarted

Yes, I've Reinstalled

Yes, I've system restored

Yes, I have AVG 8.0, Spybot S&D, Adaware

Yes it's killing me softly

And Yes, I have Admin

Definately not Reinstalling Windows without my proper gear from home...

The most info on how to correct this would be great. Also... after repeated uninstall-reinstalls, it will work, but only for a bit, before it crash dumps on my arse again...

Here's my log

Well I did deal with the Shell Extension, however, this uTorrent probelm only recently has happened, and both programs I've had running for upwards of a year on this computer.

I used ShellExView and disabled a CmdLineContextMenu, which allowed me to right click my programs again, I'm just confused with the whole crash dumping bs... like it hasn't ever happened before. I tried opening it with Admin, and it would work, then crash. Then crash repeditly after that until another reinstall. Registry Booster, as cumbersome as it is, doesn't really do a lot, and 9/10 times, I don't have it on. Regardess of it's .dll.

I doubt removing AVG would really deal with this, but I'll give it a shot.


Removed AVG, left standing, restarted, attempted to open uTorrent... Gave me the big F! U!... Crash Dump Galore...

Re-installed AVG

Tried uTorrent again.. and yeah.. you get the deal... This is like day 6 of this btw. And I appreciate the help thus far

@TLF -

I am using a LAN network 9 out of 10 times, so DLink wouldn't be an issue, and I don't have it running most of the time, its mainly for my home get up

@Firon -

Yeah... it didn't work... I got rid of the Multiframe, but you probably need to know that I'm Using an ASUS G1S, so I have a lot of software like that on here. Multiframe was on this before and it really never hurt it before... Bahh.. This is so stumping its retarded.

Would changes to themes or uxtheme.dll, shsvcs.dll and themeui.dll cause interference with uT? I doubt it would but meebe..

This time a crash wouldn't generate... Here is the new dump... perhaps it will provide some incite... Q_Q


This is definately one of the most random issues I've ever had >.>
