[quote="Apod42"]Facing exactly the same problem as OP. I run Total Commander 8.52a, on Windows 10 Pro.

When I try to delete a folder using F8, TC freezes. The folder is deleted, nonetheless. If I detele a folder using Shif+F8 everything is ok. If I delete a folder using right click and then Delete from the window all works ok.

Important: The problem does not appear if I log into Windows 10 using the hidden built-in administrator account! F8 on folders works just fine in this case.

Please anyone, any solutions?[/quote]

Running TC 64-bit.

Please use Total Commander 32-bit until I find a solution. It doesn't seem to be affected. So far I couldn't reproduce the problem on Windows 10. I guess that it is caused by a bad Explorer extension which crashes when the delete thread ends.

I have the same problem with Windows 10 Pro (version 1511) and TC 8.52a 64 bit.

Please contact me by e-mail to support at ghisler dot com for a test version which protocols what's going on. Other users who reported this problem can no longer reproduce it.

Hi Christian,

Just a quick feedback that the issue seems to have been fixed in the latest release, 9.082.

Thanks for your feedback! TC was hanging when unloading the OLE2 subsystem in the background thread which calls the delete function. What I do now is to never actually end this thread, but instead re-use it for the next delete operation. This way the hanging function is never called...

May this be the cause why Total Commander remained in memory, according to Task Manager, even 30 seconds after closing by ALT+F4, and consuming 19% memory? (On my 8 core CPU, this may mean it was using one core at the max load.)

Yes, you are probably hit by that Windows 10 bug when TC closes and the threads should be ended. Unfortunately there is nothing I can do about it. Just don't close TC. :)

Actually, it is very rare that I close it :), so as long as it does not start eating up its CPU core, it's just fine.

You could use one of the MinimizeOnClose options in wincmd.ini, see the help section 4b. for the possible values. This way you would just mimimize TC instead of closing it.
