    Lately when I right click on a menu or icon it brings up the Contribute install window. IF I cancel it it goes to the right context menu finally, what is the cause and how can I fix it?

    Where in the registry is the right-clicking functions? Can I see if there is something there that is causing it?

    Yes, I uninstalled Contribute. I have heard of ppl at work that use it having this problem, but I don't know what is causing it. I think it started after a priority MS update as I have not updated Contribute.

    Now that I think about it, it may have started after a Flash update for us... I uninstalled Contribute and now it tries to install Flash Paper. Guess I could try to uninstall that also.

    Hi all.

    It seemed to happen to me too, after I upgraded to Flash Player 9. I contacted Adobe about this and this is the solution they suggested. It worked fine for me:

    I had this too - I just inserted the Contribute CD and clicked Ok - the problem hasn't come back since.

    Sometimes installs don't quite complete all the way, letting the install finish like you mentioned does the trick :)

    This is a pretty common promblem for Office and new users who login, administrative installs FTW!
