NirSoft ShellExView (32-bit) v1.81

Vista / Win10 / Win2k / Win7 / Win8 / Win98 / WinME / WinXP
ShellExView is a freeware application from NirSoft that scans your system for Explorer shell extensions. It lists both Microsoft shell extensions and third-party extensions.

It is an invaluable tool if you want to clean up areas of your operating system, such as right-click menus. It also can be very useful to find a bad shell extension by process of elimination (if right-click, for example, takes a very long time to bring up a menu, then it could be the fault of a third-party shell extension.)

ShellExView allows you to easily disable and enable shell extensions as you please.

ShellExView is supported by all versions of Windows, right up to Windows 7. This is the 32-bit version of NirSoft ShellExView, click here to get the 64-bit version if you need that instead.
