I don't know exactly what happened today, but suddenly i can't bring up the
menu by right clicking anywhere in the start menu (the main part and all
programs part). It works when i switch to classical start menu, but i prefer
the windows xp menu. Also, the menu comes up when i right click anywhere
else such as the desktop or a folder.

Right click the Start, Button, select Properties, ensure that Classic is selected and click Customize. Put the check mark back in Enable dragging and dropping.

Thanks for the help. I tried that, but that enable dragging and dropping was
already checked. If it helps any, it is not with classical start menu that i
have the problem, it is with the new xp one. For example, where i used to be
able to right click on a folder in the programs menu and click delete, now
the menu just doesn't show up. I can however bring up the menu from right
clicking on the taskbar.

Try the same thing, but with the new Start Menu selected. This option is on the Advanced tab.

Hey, thanks a lot. It worked out great. I should have thought of that after
what you said for the classical one, but anyway, thanks again.
