Hi everyone, I am so frustrated with Windows 7. i cannot seem to right click at all in IE 8 that came with it. cannot save photos, "save target as" for music, nothing at all. Is there any fix for this? Thanks much!

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, clean install, upgrade disc
 
 

Control panel.... mouse ..... uncheck button configuration.

If that does not work you probably need a new mouse. They are rather low cost items.

I think you should try another mouse (borrow one). You may need a new one if the replacement works.

Hi, Welcome to SF,

Try to Open IE 8 without any add-ons
Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)

Or

Start > Run > iexplore.exe -extoff

Hope this helps,
Captain

Do you get NO popup memnu? Or are the items just greyed out?

Also, there was someone else on the forums that could not copy and paste and it turned out to be an overzealous piece of AV software
