I've been having an issue with right click copy and paste as well and drag and drop. I simply CANNOT move files around by any method whatsoever. Apparently shell extensions can cause this issue, but I downloaded a program that lists the shell extensions and allows you to disable them and the problem persists. I understand that a virus may also be at fault. I've done a thorough scan using avast, malwarebytes, and a number of online virus scans... and they did detect a few tracker cookies, and a couple of trojans which were sucessfully removed.... however the problem persists! I also tried the sfc/scannow function in comand promt, and the scan found and fixed SOME corrupt files, but was unable to fix ALL of them.
Also, there's a Tos...something.dll file that is associated with bluetooth that causes the same problem but I'm pretty certain my machine doesn't have this file as it doesnt have bluetooth.
I'm using a Dell Studion 1735 and Vista 32bit
Any ideas? I'm totally at a loss having tried various things. Any help would be much appreciated.
