Windows 7: bug: click in left bottom of window responds incorrectly

I wonder if this could be the answer?

Solution: uninstall or deactivate the HPWAMain.exe process.


I do not have ready access to an HP laptop right now, but I guess deactivation would be done through MSCONFIG's Startup tab (e.g. unchecking the process) and rebooting. Uninstall through the Control Panel's Programs and Features applet. A clean boot should accomplish the same thing temporarily if you wish to test this proposed solution.

Solution!


Also had this issue and found the solution for it today! At least this works for HP Laptops.

The problem is NOT related to Excel or any other application. It is something on top of them all, some process that is running hidden and in the background and only pops up, when an application is maximized to full screen and only active in this area of the screen.

I did an investigation with the ProcessExplorer Tool, activated the context menu and just saw which process was responding on this. Therefore I found out, that the process HPWAMain.exe was the problem. This is the HP Wireless Assistant application.


SOLUTION: If you deinstall it or just deactivate this process, it will solve the problem!

Left-click in the bottom area of screen activates the context menu in certain programs like Excel, Firefox, and many others.

This is a system BUG!
This has nothing to do with a corrupted user account. My brand new HP laptop has this issue and it is very annoying. My HP laptop using VISTA does not have the issue. I have reinstalled Windows 7 three times ( not necessarily for this issue ) and the issue has not been resolved.

Micro$oft please fix this issue or lose some more windows users to Linux.
