    Vista Ultimate X86 version.

    When I right click on any exe file the screen flashes and nothing happens, no menu, no way to get to properties. Same thing happens if I highlight the exe file and then hit delete. But when I double click with the left mouse button my programs work correctly.


    I have run a full scan from all these programs and they have found nothing.

    AVG free
    Spybot
    AdAware
    Malwarebytes

    I have updated all drivers and Vista is up to date as well.

    Maybe a corrupt file in windows.
    Put in your windows disc and do a repair.

    Just tried. I have an OEM version of Vista. Repair isn't an option.

    I had (sorta) the same problem a little while back...check and see if a key is stuck on your keyboard...I don't remember what key it was, but I had one stuck and it caused a similar prob with my right click...Good luck. :)

    Nope, not the keyboard or mouse.

    Does this only happen with executable files? (not shortcuts or text documents, etc.)
