Windows 7: Can't Right-Click in Internet Explorer 8

Can't Right-Click in Internet Explorer 8

I have Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 8. My 32-bit version of Internet Explorer does not allow me to right-click. Also, when I click on some links nothing happens. I can successfully right-click in my 64-bit version of Internet Explorer, but since Adobe Flash currently isn't supported this isn't a great option. Is there any way I can fix the 32-bit version of Internet Explorer 8 to enable right-clicking?
