Hi Wayne86!

For the right-clicking and no menu problem do the following:

Please right click this LINK, choose SAVE LINK AS or SAVE TARGET AS, and save it somewhere on your computer where you will remember where it is located. Then find the file on your computer and double-click it to run it. Click YES to the warning: Are you sure you want to add the information in FILE LOCATION HERE\contextmenu.reg to the registry? Then reboot your computer and once rebooted see if the right click context menu now appears.

For the no desktop icons, do the following:

Please download the file located HERE to somewhere on your computer where you will remember its location. Then find the file on your computer and double-click it to run it. Click YES to the warning: To work correctly, the script will close and restart the Windows Explorer shell. This will not harm your system. Continue?. If you don't notice any change immediately when it's done, reboot your computer.
