    My right click doesn't work in some programs like Eudora, when I have over 20
    tabs open in IE7. After I shut down a tab or two, the right click sarts
    working again. Is there a fix for this?

    If you uninstall Google Desktop/Toolbar and/or Yahoo toolbar, does the
    behavior persist?

    1. Does this behavior persist if you start IE7 in No Add-ons mode?

    To start IE7 in No Add-ons mode:

    Right-click on the blue IE desktop icon and select Start without Add-ons; or

    Start > (All) Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer (No

    2. Does the problem persist if you Reset IE7 Settings (RIES)?

    3. If you uninstall IE7 (which automatically returns you to IE6), does this
    behavior persist?

    I don't use any external toolbars or desktop search programs except Agent
    Ransack, and that's not running when the problem occurs.
    I thought it might be the IE7Pro add-on, but the problem persists running
    IE7 with add-ons disabled. Whether add-ons are enabled or disabled, when I
    open the 28th tab, even just a new tab with no web page loaded, the problem
    I tried restoring the tab settings for IE7 even though they were already set
    to default and this did not fix the problem. I tried this in IE7 with and
    without add-ons.

    Revert to IE6? Since IE6 doesn't use tabbed browsing, I am not sure how I
    could test for this behavior. Also IE7 was installed on a newly reformatted
    drive after a completely clean reinstall of XP Pro and SP2, and before any
    antimalware programs were installed (except the Windows Firewall and my
    router's firewall).
    I have seen a couple of forums that indicates some others are having the
    same trouble. And now I am thinking that possible a context handler is not
    working right http://windowsxp.mvps.org/slowrightclick.htm, but I prefer not
    to get into that unless the problem gets worse.
    Anyway, as soon as I close the 28th tab. the right click menu comes up
    normally in both Eudora and IE7
