I originally posted this problem on the HJT forum, but having been told that I do not have any malware, I have asked for that thread to be closed, and am opening this as a Windows problem.
When I right-click on any of the icons on the Quick Launch Toolbar, I get the usual menu:
Scan with AVG
Left-Clicking on any of these options works as it is supposed to.
However, if I right-click on any of the QL Toobar icons a second time, the Taskbar menu appears, preceded by
Open folder (this opens the Quick Launch Toolbar folder)
Tile Windows Horizontally
Tile Windows Vertically
Show the Desktop
Lock the Taskbar
and, crucially, left-clicking on any of the icons has no effect.
(Broadly speaking, the same happens with the Desktop toolbar.)http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/taskbarplus!.htm
- the Taskbar / "Toolbars greyed out or missing" option restores icons' left click function by restarting the Windows Shell, but that is a tedious
I am running Windows XP Professional SP3.
I also have a problem with Internet Connection Sharing. I use a Vodafone USB Modem to connect to the internet, which uses its own software to connect to the Internet. If I disconnect, when I reconnect, using PhoneConnectorVMC, the ICS is not enabled, and I have to run the Network Setup Wizard to enable ICS again.
I'd be grateful for help in unravelling these problems.
