Windows 7: Blank Drop Down Menus

Blank Drop Down Menus

I noticed this earlier today: all drop down menus are blank. For example, the run drop down menu throws up a blank white box that I can't scroll through. Nothing is highlighted, and there are no entries at all.

The same is true when I press CNTRL+O for all programs. I can browse through folders but the drop down menu at the top of the "Open" window is completely blank.

I ran CCleaner and restarted; this didn't help. Any suggestions?

When ever you run CCleaner it will delete all the auto fills which generates the drop down or suggestions once deleted that will gather info again once you start using the computer.

Cos these drop downs are temp files when ever you run ccleaner it will clear it out.
