Windows 7: Persistant context menu item

Persistant context menu item

Hello,

I found another bug in Windows Seven. I feel like I have more bugs with 7057 and 7068 than I had with 7000 and earlier.

I will probably solve this problem by rebooting, but I never reboot so this is annoying.

If I right click and choose an item in a context menu, the item stays, there is no way to remove it, and it is at the front of all other windows.

It can be removed by starting a game or switching to Win7 Basic, but it reappears as soon as I click an item in context menu.

Note: The problem is not for all context menu. I saw it appears in Explorer, Skype, Setpoint... Not in Firefox and some other programs.

Anybody having the same problem as me?

Hello again,

Just to inform you that I logged off and on again, then the problem disappeared.

I still want to know if anybody got this problem.

I have same problem, its annoying as hell during work. It happens every day I'm afraid of using context menus, because of this. Hope it will be fixed in retail.
