this happens when you have installed an addon that does something special with drive letters. what have you installed recently? have you run a virus and spyware scans? if you have and nothing positive shows up, then you need to start looking at registry settings. do you feel comfortable doing that?
My right click context menu does not work when I try to use it on a drive letter. When I am in the explorer mode my right click menu operates as it should. That is until I try right clicking on any of my drive letters C:\, D:\, E:\ and so on. Instead of operating properly at those times, the hour glass appears and remains until I kill it via the task manager. The right click menu displays the very same behavior when I try using it in the "My Computer" mode. Everything functions as it should until I try it on a drive letter. I have not made changes of any kind that I can relate to this behavior. I've researched help files, NGs, etc. and have not found the answer. My OS is Windows XP Pro. Can someone please help?
Many thanks in advance, Rob
