Yes, various things can cause upsets in the context menu, but there is nothing new in there. I have no idea at all what caused this.

I was rather hoping that somebody would write "Oh yes, that's because of so and so............".

But it looks like I am out of luck at the moment.

Just a heads up. I finally found the problem and fixed it. It was caused by registry remnants from a program I deinstalled. I deleted all references to the program in the registry and rebooted, ( for about the twentieth time!).

Everything is now back to normal.

Thanks for your suggestions.
