I'm using XPsp2, and recently I've been experiencing a problem with my start menu.
Whenever I click on the Start menu button, the menu displays as normal, but is I hold the mouse still for a second, the menu will disappear as if cancelled.
If, however, I move the mouse over or select a menu item, it seems to stay for a little while longer. Thus if I need to look over the list of applications for something specific, I have to keep the cursor moving to keep the menu displayed. Basically, this renders the Start Menu almost unusable.
I've been playing with the start menu options, and it seems that this only affects me in the XP-style menu. The Classic menu is unaffected, but I'd prefer not to have to go that way (I like the idea of having stuff that I use regularly pinned to the menu).
I've actually got a couple of things to try; Google suggests that running the desktop as a separate process or using TweakUI to adjust the menu speed could fix the problem.
I'm going off to try those now, but any other ideas would be appreciated.
