Hi There,

I've recently joined as i have a problem with windows XP that i have never seen before. I've found it a tricky problem to search for as it could come under many problems such as Windows menu corruption etc. Anyway the picture attached shows the problem the best,
Basically a lot of my menu options (new folder etc) have gone and been replaced by either placeholder or some random numbers.

Anyone got any ideas as to how to resolve this?

Thanks in advance.
Chris

PS this also effects my right click options. I'm on a Windows XP 64bit Dell workstation, that is connected to a server using Windows Server 2003 and have full access.
It happens while browsing network folders as well as local folders which is why i believe it to be a windows problem.

When Did This Started Happening ? Have you Installed Anything New At That Time ?

Is "New" Also Missing From Right Click Context Menu ?

If i right click in open space in a directory then i don't get anything coming up. (no menu at all)
But if i right click on a file i get a limited amount of options.

It's been going on for at least a few months but doesn't halt my workflow really so had ignored it during busy periods at work. Haven't installed anything that i would think would be a threat.
