I dont understand "uncheck or replace context menus try right clicking". And another is that i figured out that it doesn't work in Windows explorer either. I think it may have to do with explorer.exe.

Ok, there are a few things that need to be figured out to rule out certain factors or issues.

Before you noticed this problem have you or anyone you know of done any of the following:

Install/Uninstall any type of software or hardware
Download pictures, video, music, games, updates, ect
edit or adjust windows settings or edit the registry


Basiclly retrace your steps to the point you noticed that the right click feature is not working.

Also since you've noticed this problem how has your computer been acting, meaning; has it been running slower or sluggish, do webpages seem to load slower, unkown processes listed in the task manager (some of this may be a bit technical, sorry).

If you have any anti-virus, anti-spy or anti-adware programs pleas update them and run a scan to ensure no malicious files or software had sneaked its way in.

I ran ad-aware and it got rid of most things. Then i ran spybot and that got rid of the rest.

Also I think now that the problem lies within explorer.exe. Excuse me if mu facts are wrong but isn't that what deals with Windows Explorer and the desktop and stuff.

Hi Drumbum667...

Do you get a menu when you right click on the Taskbar?

Right-click the Taskbar and choose "Properties". Click "Start Menu" tab, then click the "Customize" button. Click the "Advanced" tab. Is there a tick in the box next to "Enable Dragging and Dropping"?
