Similar to what the topic title says when the start menu is open I can't right click. It does nothing. I haven't tried anything to restore. Anyone know why? If you want to know what programs are in my Add/removal screen i'll post a screen shot. If it also helps, might not but, after i restroed this computer the last time I have not uninstalled nearly anything XP Service Pack 2 installed.

Right-click Start Menu Items
Last updatd: 1/18/04

Q. Right-clicking Start Menu items has no effect...

A. Start, Control Panel, Taskbar and Start Menu, Start Menu, Customize, Advanced, check Enable dragging and dropping.

Let use know if that helps,
