Windows 7: Unwanted Popup Menus

Unwanted Popup Menus

I cannot use the start menu search box. When I move the cursor there a cut copy etc menu pops up and I cannot enter text in the box. If I move the cursor to the top search box at this forum the cursor changes from arrow to a hand, a little "search" grey box pops up and also keeps me from entering text. This happens in various ways in other programs also.

I am running windows 7 on four PCs. only one is doing this. What is going on?

Windows 10, Home Clean Install

Try this from an administrator account type cmd

In cmd type sfc /scannow

Hopefully this will corrrect any small corruption that is in your OS.

If the problem has just started, maybe a system restore from before the problem will remedy the situation.
