Contextual Menu Crash In OS X

in Genius Bar edited January 2014

When I try to invoke a contextual menu in OS X, the app crashes. This happens in every app I have tried.

I'm pretty sure it's not the few 3rd party extensions I have tried, as I removed them and still get the crash.

I'd try trashing the preferences, but don't know where they are...

...any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

    what 3rd party extensions did you install? have you tried restarting after uninstalling them? some programs on osx run hidden. you can only see them from special tools, like `ps` and `top` in If your savvy, you can try kill'ing suspicious processes you see in `top`, but restarting will more likely kill them (unless they are set to autostart when u log in).

    i don't know if trashing prefs will help, but many of them are located in "~/Library", and "~/Library/Application Support". (tilde [~] means "/Users/yourloginame/"). You shouldn't trash the whole folder of course. And you should be wary of what you delete (if anything) from there.

    I got this problem in Jag with M$'s Intelli Mouse Explorer. Just reinstall the M$ drivers and it should work.
