Topic: [SOLVED] Virtual DJ 2021 freezing when clicking 'hard drives'
MorienHome userMember since 2015
I know it may seem a bit silly to post the solution right away, but, anyway, here's the thing:

System specs:
-Windows 10 on:
-Dell Inspiron 15 7558 (8GB RAM);
-Samsung SSD (850 EVO, 480 GB...);
-No controller

I've never experienced such weird freezes before, and I immediately thought 'what systems VDJ depend on...?'
Turns out my 'explorer' process was also acting weird and freezing, whenever I clicked 'My Computer'.
So, I searched a bit, and a bit more, when finally got to this "delete some registry keys" thing.

\\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Classes\\Local Settings\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\Shell

Delete all "BagMRU" and "Bags" (they say not to worry, because Windows rebuilds them upon restart, and so it is...)
I had literally hundreds of keys within "Bags". They're about all gone. And so is that freezing sh==...

In the end, VDJ wasn't freezing at all. It was Windows "Exploder"...or explorer...

Hope it helps someone, someday. Cheers!

I came across another situation like that. Same symptoms, different cause: it was an unresponsive cell phone connected to a PC/notebook. 🤦‍♂️
(Though it never happened during live events, because...precautions...)
