Hi Guys,

I just finished installing XPHome on a new HD for a friend. One thing that I have noticed is that I cannot right-click on "My Computer" or other items. Nothing comes up on the right click. What could be wrong?

Oh well,

Just started getting some errors. "lsass.exe" and I/O errors. Tried rebooting and and it went BSOD. Looks actually like a corrupted install. New, fresh out of the wrapper Windows CD, though. I don't understand.

Just do a fresh install I spose, only other thing I could have thought might be problem of no right click would be the right click is disabeled in options.

Enjoy format and reinstall.

Found out the problem. It was the CDRom in the tower. Third time Windows still a had troubles.
Swapped it out with another and reloaded Windows, no probs now.

Not installation issue

Hey, I am experiencing the same thing.

Everything worked fine and has been for months. I re-installed my Intel webcam software and now I cannot right-click on anything in my Start > All Programs menu. When I right-click, you can see the menu flash open and then closed VERY quickly, kinda like the focus is being drawn elsewhere.

Anyone find a fix for this?

Windows XP Pro, SP1

Thanks for the response cpugeniusmv, but I don't think you understand what I am saying:

When I click Start, go to All Programs, I cannot right-click on ANYTHING. Nornally, you should be able to right click on any item in the All Programs folder and select "Sort by name", "Send to >" and other various options... nothing happens :confused:


I just found out that it has something to do with my profile ONLY. I logged into my gf's and everything works as it should...
