Unhappy right click malfunction

Help, when i right click on any web page it closes internet explorer completely down. I've reinstalled several times, have the service packs, run virus scans, adware removal/scans. WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG?

Try a diffrent mouse.

Go to the mouse config and see whats goin on there.

The most EXTERME thing that u could do if u know that ur mouse is ok is to reinstall windows.

AMD Athlon XP 3200+ @3.0 Ghz
Thermaltake Highest Xaser III (7 80mm case fans)
MGE XG Vortec 600W Power Supply
1G Corsair XMS PC-3200
2 x 120 Gig 7200RPM
Logitech 5.1 - Z640 Speakers
Thermaltake BigWater Liquid Cooling System
ViewSonic VP201b 20.5\" LCD (16 ms refresh rate)

It's not the mouse and i tried reinstalling windows, internet explorer, service packs for all. it only happens on the web page area. I've sort of gotten around it by accessing the web thru my MS outlook where i have no problems right clicking on the web page. There is just some kind of bug on the interent explorer that will follow me to the death of the cpu. thanks though

I found a solution. If I have found that I can access the web through Windows Explorer application and I have absolutely no problems with the right click dropping me from the web. Yippee!!!!
