This is a weird one and I'm usually pretty good at solving these myself. Here's what happens... when I start my computer and XP loads, once everything is loaded and good to go, if I right click anyway, the contextual menu disappears almost immediately. The cursor moves normally but there's something erratic about clicking. If I click the start menu, it immediately disappears or gets stuck on the first thing the cursor goes over. If it goes over log out, the task bar disappears for a second, then everything comes back on. It's almost as if the left mouse button is stuck down or something. My way around it is to press the "Home" media key on my keyboard so an IE window pops up. I close that and everything's fine. Very strange. This is on my other computer, not this one. I built the computer about 7 years ago myself and only just recently loaded XP Pro onto it. Any ideas? I'm having a lot of problems with drivers for my audio and video cards, too, but can work around those for now. I'll get to the static coming from my speakers (probably an audio card issue since it's old) another time.
Thanks in advance,
