A little right mouse missing

On September 14, 2010, in Rants, by

I have an issue with right mouse clicking.  Or rather I had one.  I couldn’t right mouse click in a browser session and then it would mess up my right mouse click context menu.  I tried reregistering the browser.  I tried reviewing the registry for certain keys that can block it.  I tried everything I googled my heart out.  I built a new profile and got my right mouse click back.

Then I had to move my profile contents from one profile to the other.

Ugh.  But at least I have my right mouse click back.  Amazing how little things can slow you down.

    When you have weird symptoms related to context menus:

    Get ShellExView from http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.html and fire it up.

    Sort by “Type,” and disable all the non-Microsoft context menu handlers (disable is on the r-click menu). This usually fixes the problem. If so, you can re-enable until you find the offender. Either leave it disabled, or remove/reinstall, get a newer version, etc.
