Windows 7: Windows 7 right-click menu is left aligned after update

Windows 7 right-click menu is left aligned after update

After installing a few updates at once on the 12th, when I right-click on my desktop, the top-right of the menu appears at the cursor position.

That's what normally happens when you are too close to the edge, but it happens all the time now.

Updates I installed in order of install:
