Start menu sub menus not appearing

seem to have a bit of a problem with my start menu, when i8 click on a sub menu it does not away appear, i have included a pic, right clicking on one of the other sub menus then click on the one that just didn't appear makes it show up right, you can still click onto the menu and get an "unknown" item to work, its a custom install with RT Se7en Lite that i just installed

Hello dsk04,

In your Visual Effects Settings, uncheck these items below and click on OK to see if that may help stop this.
  • Animations in the taskbar and Start Menu
  • Fade or slide menus into view
  • Fade or slide ToolTips into view
  • Fade out menu items after clicking
  • Slide open combo boxes
In addition, this may help speed the opening of menus as well.

Menu Show Delay Time

Hope this helps,
