Windows 7: Auto-Right Click in search bar when I open start menu

MS Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
Auto-Right Click in search bar when I open start menu

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit.
For other system specs I have added them to my profile.

When I open the start menu whether it be with the windows key or mouse click a right click menu pops up and appears to be right clicked inside the search bar, I tested this by copying some text and clicking paste on the auto right click menu.

It stays there until I click something but will come back within 1 second or until I stop holding the mouse button.

Note: So far It's ONLY happened in the start menu search box.

Any and all help will be appreciated!

Have you installed some third party software? Something that tweaks setting? Could be something recently installed doing it.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
same problem here

Hey I have the same problem here.

I recently formatted my computer and re-install everything without any problem. Then, after a while (I don't think I install anything before I noticed the problem) the mouse would automatically right-click in any search bars (start button, top right corner in folders, etc.).

I tried the recovery console and went back in time to erase the last changes that were made to the system, I did multiple scan of the computer with Avast, Spy-bot, Ad-Aware, etc. with no luck. Anybody have figure this out yet ?
