I had a the SAME problem with my last PC & I actually went out & purchased a new PC because of this problem now 6-8 weeks later I am have exactly the same problem.

After so long of using the right click copy & paste feature it just STOPS when I right click the option menu does not appear making it impossible for me to copy & paste unless i use the 'ctrl' with C & V buttons! This will work again if I reboot which is a pain as I work from home & I copy & paste ALOT! Also have found when this starts if somebody posts a link on a forum & I click it, it won't open the page (any page)!

This is bananas :help:

Can anyone help I'd muchly apprieciate it :blink:

I hope this is in the right area of the forum :whistling:

Many thanks

Charlene

If you have your XP disk, try a System File Check. It sounds like something is getting whacked in your right click context menu.
Start > Run > cmd
type
sfc /scannow
You will be prompted to insert your XP CD.

sfc - system file checker, retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

If you want to see what was replaced, right click My Computer > manage, expand event viewer > system.
