context menu problems

Hello,

As the title suggests, I'm having lots of problems with my right-click context menu. They include:
  • The menu for 7-zip is present, but does nothing (no sub-menu opens)
  • The "Open with" menu opens a sub-menu that only has one entry, also named "Open with"...if I click it, nothing happens
  • The "Share with" menu opens an empty sub-menu
Thanks in advance for any help that anyone can offer.

Is that when you rt click on a file only?

Are you having issues with folders and drives also?

No, it's not just files (or any file type) in particular...if I right-click on anything that is relevant to these menus, they have this problem (so any time the menus appear).
