Hi Brian, i followed the link and the suggestions to switching left handed to right handed for the mouse detection on the right and left clicks. It worked on the left click that shows the context menu and doesn't happen for the right click after i switch it back. So i supposed it's the mouse problem and not the driver. And yeah i knew about the shortcuts but preferable it on the mouse itself. Saves time. (:

Currently running the sfc /scannow and running diskcleaup as well. I'll reply back with my findings later. Thanks!

Hi all, sorry to reply this late as i was pretty busy and things happen. Well i've used another mouse and it's working fine so i guess it's the mouse right-click that's spoilt. So thanks again everyone who contributed to my posts with their suggestions. Appreciate the help! Thanks!
