I have a strange problem. After working with the computer (Xp pro) I realised some functiones are disabled. For example rigt click menu items are dicreased, in IE explorer right click does not open for copy and need to use top edit pull down menu for using copy, and so on... .When This happens I have to close few programs to get this menus to work. Sometimes Adone acrobat does not open untill I close a few open windows or programs. Keep closing windows this way after some time gets worth and have to restart computer to access full functionality of XP. Any advice what might be the problem? :thumbsup:

Have you ran any scans to see if you have any infections, if not please click on this link http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php and download the free version to somewhere you remember, after downloading, right click the .exe and rename it to something like rabbit.exe or a name you will remember, then run it so it installs and let it update automatically then run it, if it finds any infections delete as appropriate then reboot to enable full clearance of infections !

Good Luck ! :thumbsup:

Could be damaged system files...you might try running the sfc /scannow command.
