right click menu appears for a second and disappears.

Hello all,

windows 7 64 bit,

when i highlight any text, and then right click to copy, i get a menu with, bing, google, translate, etc. It appears for one second and then my regular menu appears.

I was suspicious it was from open office so i deleted that but the menu still appears. I would take a screen shot but it disappears to fast.


any ideas??

Chris

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Are you highlighting this text while inside a browser? If so, which browser are you using when this happens? You might try removing each accelerator, restarting the computer and then putting each desired accelerator back one at a time (testing the context menu between each one).

Are you in internet explorer when you see that? That is the accelerators that are built in to internet explorer.
See here: Using Accelerators to find addresses, define words, and do other tasks with selected text

If not,

Sounds like some type of software doing that. Can you take a screenshot of all the programs installed on your pc? We can try ti find the culprit.
