Portions of menus remaining on screen

I have a new computer which has an annoying little problem. Sometimes when I right click on the desktop and select a menu item, for example "order icons by" and then select "name" the name portion of the drop down remains permanently on the screen until I shut down or select a different desk top area setting. It only seems to happen the once per boot. The system as an intel duel core processor and an ati X1650 series graphics card. Any help would be gratefully received

Hi, annoying yes, but I think most of us have a similar thing happen from time to time, I know I do. When it happens a 'Refresh' often clears it, otherwise I just ignore it, then when I am doing something else it just corrects itself.

Happy New Year.

PS - I don't really know it it helps, but regular disk maintenance usually takes care of little annoyances, i.e. disk cleanup/defrags etc.

Found the problem. Macromedia flash 8 is conflicting with another program in my startup group. Still trying to find which program but at least I'm getting there

many thanks
