thanx crx1600,it doesnt seem the case for me tho as i get no menu whatsoever,its starting to get fustrating as its so much quicker within applications,also i cannot close some programs i have running within the toolbar unless i disable them first,which is getting to be a chore,anymore advice anyone?

Very obvious - but have you tried another mouse - it may be the button has failed!

how about re-assigning the mouse for a left hander.

so the left click becomes the right.that will confirm it for you.
