Hi, all,
This is weird--I have regular administrator along with additional administrator account--Also using 4 limited accounts--In my limited account,I can right click and get menu to work with all options----On all other limited accounts, if I right click I get explorer problem-yadda yadda,etc. and then Dr Watson--can only get back by ending these processes( not tasks) Has anyone encountered this before?? Thanks--hammer90

A few things to try:
1) Promote one of the malfunctioning Standard Accounts to Administrator - does the behavior continue?
2) Then demote the account again - does the behavior continue?
3) Create a new Standard User account - does the behavior continue?

If 3) works, then I'd guess that some setting for the other accounts is messed up - and the "fix" would be to create new accounts and move the documents/data over to them.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
