Today when I tried to right click on my desktop to create a new folder my windows explorer would hang. After clicking around awhile the desktop will turn white and then reset itself.

When I tried using whatishang.exe to figure out what was going on it gave me "Remarks: * The program hangs in a single system call. You can look in the call stack and stack data to find out which API function cause this hang." and a bunch of other things that I don't understand. Can anyone help me out with this problem? I tried using a virus scan and a spyware scan but nothing helped. Thanks!

If anyone encounters the same problem as me I managed to fix it by creating a new administrator account and just transferring all my documents from my old corrupted account to this new account.
