Was wondering if anyone knew what the problem might be. Have to turn off computer and back on each time.

Hi there,

Could you please describe the problem in more detail? What exactly happens when you right click? Is it only in IE?

Nothing at all happens when right clicking. It usually starts when in IE. I will click a link and it will not open. I try right clicking and nothing. I then close IE and reopen and it will open and stay blank. I will close it again and then I try clicking the icon or any other icon on the desktop and nothing will open. That is when I end up having to turn the computer off and then back on. I have also noticed that the Windows security alert has been saying that it has quit working or something, and says to restart computer, that is when I can get it open before nothing at all will open.

By judging what you're describing, there's a possibility that this could be malware. I suggest following the directions in this thread and then posting your HJT log here.
