    When I right click in certain areas on my computer, I get a Not Responding error. This happens with my mouse and trackpad when I right click, so it's my computer and not mouse. For example:

    Applies to:
    - Desktop folders/icons/files. When my desktop stops responding, it flashes white, refreshes, and it's fine.
    - Any folder or white space in any of my folders

    Doesn't apply to:
    - Browser (Chrome)
    - Desktop empty space (right clicking on my desktop, not any icons)

    Does anyone have a solution for this or know what I can do to find out? I think it might be a 3rd party software but I'm not sure what to do if it is. Any help is appreciated!

    If you know the make and model of your computer try checking the support page online and if a driver update is available install it otherwise try re-installing the same driver again. Sometimes the upgrade process can mess with certain drivers and apps, re-installing usually helps.
