Hi Sylvain, that's interesting - all the things you did. Windows does seem to periodically reset the run counts. Also, it's cool that we have a tool to not only decode the UserAssist data but also manipulate it. :) I really have no idea why that particular shortcut was being "blocked" in C...

I use this app called Start Menu Frequent Programs (http://www.byounce.com/clicks/click.php?id=5). You can enter the UserAssist CLSIDs in it and then it decodes those Registry keys.

Classic Shell does not do anything to Google Chrome so such a thing is impossible. If you are using third party (non-standard) Windows themes, then that might be the cause.

@DAOWAce, if you observe that it is not crashing, then you need to create a slowdown dump while it's happening. The dump will capture the state of the Explorer process when the slowdown is happening.

You can use a batch file to delete the .tmp file and include the Rename command in that batch file.

The file order issue is buggy Windows Explorer behavior I think (of the File Pane). You could try selecting it differently using the mouse or using the keyboard.
