Explorer restarts when I right click

Hey all. Today (dunno when it actually started) I noticed that whenever I right click an exe file or a shortcut anywhere in my pc windows explorer restarts. And even odder, it doesn't restart any other applications. They keep running fine.

I thought it had to do with this pup.exe application that was running on it's own on my pc but I found out that was something that dl'd from warez when looking for a game crack. I also found how to remove it.

I have also updated my registry to make sure that it was recognizing exe files correctly straight from the microsoft homepage.

I am currently at a loss.
