Windows 7: Strange issue with dropdown menus

Strange issue with dropdown menus

For some reason, whenever I right click on something I get a blank box and options won't appear until I put cursor in box and drag it down. All the options (such as "delete") appear and stay there until I do something else. All the options do work.

I must have changed a setting without realizing it.

It happens in Live Mail program, on my desktop, etc. - anywhere where a right click gives a utility menu.

Any suggestions please.

If you right click on desktop and then click refresh .... the refresh stays there, until you do some other action?

Strange RAM issue
I have 4x2GB sticks of OCZ Gold DDR2-800 RAM, but for some reason, I'm not able to use all 4 sticks on my motherboard, despite the fact that the documentation clearly says that it supports 8 GB of RAM. I already ruled out bad RAM as I've used every combination of 2 of the 4 sticks of RAM with no...
