Just recently when trying to format cells etc. after right clicking on the cell the context menu appears and disappears within a few moments. Sometimes there is sufficient time to navigate the menu but most often not. The problem is affecting the ribbon drop downs also and is present in Word. The others I haven't checked as I tend not to use them.


Tried re-booting and running in safe mode but this doesn't help. Tried a different compatibility mode and this works but is rather cumbersome and removes some functionality.


The problem only seems to exist in my profile. I've thought about creating a new profile but the thought of having to copy across all the necessary files rather puts me off.


I was wandering if anybody on here had a better suggestion or easier solution. If I have to create a new user profile I'd like it to have the same name as the original and also all of it's associated programs. Many thanks in advance.


Update: I've now installed MS Office Pro+ 2010 and the problem persists.
