one left click and try to click on the file menu, the open windows all close
and the desktop refreshes

When you say "still" having trouble, that implies that you've been
working on a previous problem. If this is the case, since you didn't
post to your original thread, I have no way of knowing if someone has
been working with you and if so, what you've done. With that in mind,
my suggestion to you is that you check out these links and also run
ShellExView to see what third-party extensions are in the context menu.
You can troubleshoot by disabling all the non-MS extensions and then
enabling them one at a time.

Right-click is slow or weird behavior caused by context menu handlers -

Right-click is extremely slow only when Network is enabled -

Right click causes an error and crashes Explorer.exe after installing
