Default Right-clicking the start menu.

Hey guys. I've had the problem for a while now...I'm using the Windows XP style start menu, and it won't let me right click on the items on it. Just a minor problem really, but I'd really like to be able to right click so I can sort them by name. Also, when I switch to the classic start menu, right-clicking works. Anybody know how to fix this? I believe it might be something with the registry keys, but I'm not sure.

You mean the start button or start menu? What is the path to the folder you are right clicking on?

Sorry, I was referring to the items listed under all programs. In which case, if you are asking for a specific directory, I am unable to right-click any of the items listed under all programs.

No, it doesn't crash or anything. The start menu (programs list) flashes very briefly then comes right back. Other than that, nothing at all happens.
