Hi there

When I right-click on a folder or file in Windows Explorer or use the File
menu option such as properties, nothing happens!

Right click options such as WinZip etc. work - but XP ones such as
properties and security / sharing do nothing!

Anyone any ideas what is going on here? I haven't loaded any software
recently - this just seemed to start happening. My Norton software is
up-to-date so I don't think it is a virus...

Really do not want to wipe my PC and have to start all over again....but if
this doesn't sort itself out then it looks like I might have to.

All help much appreciated

Mike

Right-click is slow or weird behavior caused by context menu handlers:
