When I try to right click a folder on the desktop, or a sub folder the "right click context menue" wont appear, the mouse indicator just starts "working" - then nothing.. I need to do a ctr alt delete to stop the indicator from "working"

Never had this problem before.. What to do???

Thankful for any help!

Try holding down the right mouse button for a longer time, depending on the speed of computer, how much ram it has, and what's installed on it, etc, it can take a very long time for the menu to appear. – martineau Oct 13 '12 at 18:23
The thing is it whent from no problem to this in one hour, without any new programs/media downloaded etc.. holding the right click down does not solve the problem.. but tnx.. – Carl Oct 13 '12 at 18:37
Which Windows version? Can you create a new user account for testing purposes and see if it behaves the same way? – Karan Oct 14 '12 at 18:11
