Program Submenus

Hopefully someone can help with this problem...

When I try to open programs using the start menu the programs list can be seen but the submenus for these programs are not. Only a blank white box. But when I click in the box the program opens. Is there anyway that I can see the menus for the programs again? Using Windows XP SP2 Home Edition on a Dell Inspiron 600m.

Aeflux, Have You Tried ???

...System Restore to a time when the computer was working correctly?

Click on Start-All Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Restore. When the SR window loads, select "Restore my computer to an earlier time". When the next "Calendar" window loads, select a date when the computer worked correctly, then proceed on with the various prompts to restore the computer. (If you need to go back to an earlier "month", click on the "back arrow" next to the month indicator on the calender.) AFter following the prompts, the machine should reboot itself and hopefully should be correct.

Hope this helps.
