How to enable mouse right click
I lost the functionality of my mouse right click in internet explorer. No
menu appears when I right click inside the IE window. I use IE 7.0 and
windows XP SP3. How can I restore the functionality of the right click?

Thanks

Does the right mouse button work any other time? Could you have a bad mouse?
Have you checked all the settings in the Mouse applet in the control panel?
Try reversing the mouse buttons in the control panel an see if the right button even works.

Maybe my repairt script helps. try:
http://iefaq.info/index.php?action=a...133&artlang=en

If that doesn't help:
Use the usual methods to identify the third-party software that produces
your problem:
1. run IE in "No Add-Ons" mode
2. disable third-party extensions in Internet Options/Advanced
3. boot Windows in safe mode

If any or a combination of the above solves your problem there is third-party
software responsible for your problem. Note: you have to surf in each step
long enough to identify if the problem persists or not and keep that
functionality switched off when you change to the next step. Just booting
into safe mode and then back to normal won't achieve anything.
If 1.: use Add-Ons-Manager and disable all non-Microsoft add-ons and*
*******reenable them step-by-step until your problem comes back
If 2.: that's likely a toolbar or some other installable add-on
If 3.: that's likely a third-party software run from startup that can but
*****
*******doesn't need to have "visible" connections to IE, for instance
*******a so-called desktop search.
