right mouse button after SP2 install

By fred.pickering ·
It may be a coincidence but since installing SP2 when I right click on a
icon on the desktop to check properties I get the hourglass and nothing
happens. The same for icons in the task bar although the start-up group to
the far right are okay. I have seen a reference to this elsewhere and would
appreciate any info to correct this problem with my right mouse button functionality

The same thing happen to my computer too, so i save all my files and rebooted the computer with a windows xp cd. Right after i finish the installation, i installed service pack 2 and now it works fine. Try it and see if it work.

I subsequently discovered that Dr DivX and a number of other programs did not handle shell intergration very well after installation of SP2. There are a number of updates that address this problem or a program called ShellExView v1.01 can be used to turn off shell intergration to force a solution.
