Win XP Right Click on Mouse Causes Lock

By gmichaels ·
I have a new Dell Dimension 8300 win XP system. When I right click on a desktop icon or the start button on the task bar, the hourglass starts counting and I never get a response. I can still move the mouse at this point but clicking on anything else after the first failure does not work. The three finger solute is reqired to reboot. The werider thing is I can right click everyewhere else in the OS such as desktop, taskbar, properties, menus etc. But try right clicking on a desktop icon or the start button and its locked. I even tried running in safe mode as Administrator and the problem still existed. Also reininstalled the driver. No improvement with the new driver. What goes here !@#%$ ?
