Windows 7: Right mouse click bug

Right mouse click bug

Hi there,

When I click with the rightmouse button on a program (in this case, ESET NOD32)
the menu bar appears as it should be, but when I click "Open window". ESET opens up, but that bar "Open window will not go away"

Anyone knows how to solve this?

1) Right click on Computer, choose Properties
2) On the left list, click 'Advanced System Settings'
3) The resulting Properties dialog should appear with the Advanced tab active
4) The first section is 'Performance', under which there is a Settings button. Click this.
5) In the scroll list, look for and uncheck the 'Fade out menu items after clicking' item.
6) Click on OK twice to navigate out.

Does this solve the problem?

Also, it's helpful when you have your system specs filled out.
