Windows 7: Can not Right Click

Can not Right Click

This problem is difficult to describe but here is my best attempt:

1. cannot right click anywhere in the computer.

2. active windows have the menu options underlined so that when i attempt to use the shift or control keys, a menu action is the result, rather then then the normal typing function that i am attempting to exicute.

3. active windows do not appear on top

4. windows media player will not show the video window, only the playlists. it does play the file, but i cannot see the video. now, i could see the video if i left the window small and the window is not the active window (see hard to explain)

now all these happen after i reboot or turn the computer off and on again. the problems seem to resolve themselves after about 10 days. but that is awful and i hate it. i have maxpc cleaner and stopzilla protection. i had not downloaded any software, i did use the restore point right after the first instance (which was three months ago). now i did spill beer on my key board and was forced to get a wireless one. Logitech k250. if that is the cause, is there a solution without buying a new keyboard. i would use question marks, but that combo of keys erases what i have typed, sorry.

but any suggestions would be welcomed.

thank you for your time.

MaxPC Cleaner??? What is that? Windows 7 doesn't need (or sometimes tolerate) "cleaners."

Run System Restore to a point before these issues started. If you can't do that, back up your personal information and use your restore disks.

FYI, you can get a replacement keyboard on eBay, brand new, for next to nothing.

It's part of the stopzilla security. It just removes unused files it was loaded long after the problem started.

Okay, still not needed, but the rest of my post still stands as well.

Then back up your stuff and use your restore disks to go back to a factory installation.
