Floppy disk Crash but possibly a Windows problem

Hi Toni,

I'm determined to play Pool of Radiance but am encountering a crash occasionally, usually the first time I boot up WinUAE when selecting disk images to load. It doesn't always seem to happen a second time after that and Adobe Acrobat Reader DC (which I'm reading my manuals from) then ALSO crashes soon after too so that's what's making me think this is a Windows problem. I thought I'd mention it anyway though as you never know.

I recently attempted to install ADFView which as you probably know is very old software now and although the files copied, the installer hanged and I wasn't able to use the Uninstaller to then remove it either. It did seem to be causing me problems such as "This PC" (Explorer) also hanging but browsing other directories gave no problems. I've since removed the contents of the C:\Windows\System32\ShellExt folder and haven't had problems after doing so, aside from those crashes I describe above.

I'm running Windows 10 (x64) and attached three log files and the modified Windowed config file I use. I'm running from Quickstart on a standard A500 with 2 floppy drives.

Many thanks.
