It went on for months. I stumbled on a screen that showed the mouse driver somehow. I jumped on the opportunity to uninstall and reinstall WINDOWS mouse driver from disk. Rebooted and my right-click was working suddenly. I jumped and a hollered, wuuuuu.
I think it was the Windows device driver 'tree' screen. You can have drivers installed, that does not mean they will be used; that's what i learned.
Hope this helps.
I consider myself very knowledgable - but this has me baffled:
XP Pro w/SP2 on a Gateway 1.4Gh (Intel D850GB Mb,) 256 Mb of PC800 RDRAM RIMMs, WD1200 HDD. PS2 mouse & kb, standard monitor.
New install of OS, all MS security & crit updates. Nothing extra. Few apps installed.
When I right click on file(s) in a folder the screen blinks, and I hear the sound of a USB PnP device being added to the system. Of course no evidence of a PnP being installed.
No USB devices are attached. All USB ports have been tested and are good. And worst off all - This is intermintant. Any ideas?
