Left click brings up right click context menu on desktop

For the last few weeks whenever I left click on the desktop it brings the right click menu. This dosen't happen in the browser (firefox), but only in the windows desktop and start menu. However i the browser if I am on a web player like youtube, the portion that displays the video fails to display my cursor. as a result i am not able to control the video settings in the browser. any help is much appreciated !

System specifications would help, especially what type of mouse you've got, but at a guess I'd say there's something not right with your mouse settings.
