    Hi

    In IE8 if I right click on a link the menu appears but nothing happens when I click on the options, for example open in new tab etc

    Does the problem occur in all websites or only in some?

    Does the problem persist after quitting and restarting Internet Explorer?

    Does it persist after restarting your PC?

    Hi Hans

    Thanks for the prompt reply, Your suggestions did not work in this case, however I have been experimenting with add-ons and I discovered that disabling Google Add-ons and now it works.

    Wether thi is the correct solution or not I don't know but this worked for me.

    Regards

    One of the very first things I do when working on someone's ailing PC is to uninstall, delete, eradicate, remove any and all instances of "Google" addons and/or applications. Same goes for Yahoo and ALL other 3rd-party "Toolbars". G A R B A G E!!

    One person's garbage is another's delicacy, Jeff.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Hey, easy big guy! I just learned how to spell "garbage" today so anything more than that would be asking way too much.

    Absolutely true! However, I can't recall ever seeing Seagull on any restaurant menu; not even as a delicacy.
