    microsoft.public.windows.vista.security news group,
    Adare, not Adair.
    Have you ever actually right-clicked in a browser window?

    Yes Paul but I didn't look very well and it's Adare. Those are there on the
    rt. click context--I have a lot faster way of doing most of them and I
    explained it. But as I said and others have said, this biols down to that
    his IE has some corrupted files if he can't do it, and I seconded the motion
    for him to check his browser addins by disabling and then adding them one by
    one and also running what often fixes many IE problems, SFC.

    If those don't fix it, I'd do a startup repair which does not have to be
    confined in Vista no boot situations. That should fix it.

    Mr. Adare, actually I offered substantive constructive fixes. I don't see
    any at all under your name and got thrown by the OP's term for browser
    window but not that far, and I missed those guys on the right click context.
    The key combos and dragging the "e" from the address bar are faster ways of
    getting them done.

    I have seen the google toolbar crash IE7,but not the behavior you discribe
    although I don't doubt it might happen. I've had to uninstall and reinstall
    the google toolbar but if it wont' work for him andis the culprit, there
    are many ways to use google.

    Actually I do get the point and if it isn't "google toolbar related" then
    it's logical again, again to

    1) Check the addins as described
    2) Run SFC
    3) Do a startup repair or run system restore from Win RE or F8's Adv
    Options.

    One of those should fix his problem with non-functionoing menu items on the
    rt. click context menu browser window.

    microsoft.public.windows.vista.security news group,
    If this problem was caused by the Google toolbar, and in
    this case it was as the OP has responded back that
    removing the Google toolbar resolved his problem then none
    of your suggested solutions would have accomplished
    anything.
