Okay. After a couple of days of doing everything in the list....I have slowed it down. It was at 15 min or so intervals, now it seems to be about an hour or so. Much more manageable, but I still have the issue. The malware scan did find something. I took a screenshot and will upload with this post. I did the sfc scan. I also took the liberty of doing a scan disk, and scanned with windows defender (which was off after the upgrade to 7 from Vista). Nothing else has come up. So, I might be looking at the repair install after all. But I want to keep digging and see if we can find it instead of doing a blanket fix.,

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoActiveDesktopChange s (Hijack.DisplayProperties) -> Bad: (1) Good: (0) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

Turns out was a false positive by the malware software according to their forums. Back to square one. I don't have a restore point that goes back as far as the problem goes. Atleast I am pretty sure I don't because I know the problem is about 2 weeks old and my last restore point is about a week old. One of the times I wish I had not cleaned them out to save hard drive space......

So, in the morning I shall start a repair install I guess. Now, I will say I changed the "whitelisted" item above back and removed the malware software.

Personally,. I would delete the NoActiveDesktopChanges

That will give you right-click functionality on the desktop.

Have you updated all your drivers?

Deleting the NoActiveDesktopChanges was a mistake as it shut down the right click function and not enable it. All drivers were good to go and none of the scans found a thing. Period. I ended up backing up all the files/music/and other things to my external and did a factory restore. From there, as soon as it was completely up and running, I upgraded it from factory Vista to Windows 7. I have all my programs reinstalled(all Live, Yahoo msg, Itunes, Office) ex for Wolfenstein 09, Halo 2, and DDO. I am not reinstalling DDO. I think something in there some where had is screwed up. I will say that I found on another forum window7 Keeps going out of fullscreen mode

that turns out it may have been AVG. However, I got AVG running now without a hitch. Perhaps it was 8.5 they had issues with, but I had 9.0 from the start on Win 7. The actual problem will never be found on my machine cause it has been wiped completely away.

Something is wrong there, deleted the NoActiveDesktop changes should allow you to right-click on the desktop.

Did you reboot?

Yes, I rebooted like a brazillian time (thats a alot)!!!! After the noactivedesktopchanges was taken out, I could right click and nothing would happen. My menu would not come up or anything. Now, I will say that I have reinstalled Halo 2 and Games for Windows and it is running flawlessly. Should have done this like 3 weeks ago!
