Hi All,

(friends pc running XP home)

thanks to your help the virus problem on friends pc now cured.

So, when I went into 'my programs' I thought I'd just list by name but when I right clicked, nothing happened.

Also if right clicking on a folder nothing happens (no list of options appears) but the folder opens normally if left clicked.

It is also not possible to create a shortcut to the esktop by right clicking and dragging across.

Can you help please?

many thanks,

Why not do a system restore to a point in time when this did not happen.

have you tried the mouse troubleshooter in control panel?
Could you try another mouse?
I create shortcuts by left clicking holding down and dragging
