    Recently my Mouse's right button shuts down apps as well as closing windows/folders/files. For example, I tried to delete a folder from my Favorites from IE8, but I right clicked oin this folder, IE8 closed. Aklso when I downloaded a driver and saved it to folder, when right clicked on the driver in it's folder, the folder closed. I have upograded my mouse's driver as well as my touchopad's driver.(which also has the same issue). I thought is simply a hardware issue, but after broswing here,reading about poeople who were having troubles, with the Right Click menus, I want to check to be sure my problem not a software issue, instead. But other than instances I posted here all the Right Click menus seem to work just fine.

    Any idea on where to start fixing this??


    BTW does anybody know where I view the default Right Click menus and possibly under what circumstances they appear when I right click!

    I think this is a software issue.

    If your problem just started recently, you could try a Restore point to before this problem started.

    I don't "believe" Restore Points, because in they past they made a bigger mess that I had before. I rather find the cause of this problem.

    OK then,
    Did you try did with your laptop's mouse touchpad to see if this also happens?
    Did you try using another mouse to see if your mouse is defective?
    Since you do not use System Restore, have you disabled it? Save yourself some valuable space.

    Good luck
    Ray
