Right Click problem

Posted: 01-07-2009, 03:32 PM

Hi

I am having a problem with my Vista X64 and hope if anyone can help.
For sometimes now, whenever I right click on any icon on desktop or i
File Manager, the action triggers Adobe Acrobat Installation program.
Can anyone tell me how to fix it

Thank you very much in advance

Does this happen if you log on to another account?

Make another one. It's a very bad idea to only have one user account anyway.
Here's my standard boilerplate about that:

****
You absolutely do not want to have only one user account. Like XP and all
other modern operating systems, Vista is a multi-user operating system with
built-in system accounts such as Administrator, Default, All Users, and
Guest. These accounts should be left alone as they are part of the
operating system structure.

You particularly don't want only one user account with administrative
privileges on Vista because the built-in Administrator account (normally
only used in emergencies) is disabled by default. If you're running as
Administrator for your daily work and that account gets corrupted, things
will be Difficult. It isn't impossible to activate the built-in
Administrator to rescue things, but it will require third-party tools and
working outside the operating system.

The user account that is for your daily work should be a Standard user, with
the extra administrative user (call it something like "CompAdmin" or "Tech"
or the like) only there for elevation purposes. After you create
"CompAdmin", log into it and change your regular user account to Standard.
Then log back into your regular account.

If you want to go directly to the Desktop and skip the Welcome Screen with
the icons of user accounts, you can do this the same way as in XP:

****

Now, to address your problem - The reason "Pavel A." asked if the issue
arises in another user account is to try and determine if something you
have running only in your account is the culprit. The problem may be
system-wide, or maybe not. Very often right-click problems are caused by
third-party context menu extensions. Perhaps you had an Adobe product that
didn't install properly and there is a right-click context menu item from
it.

You can manage right-click context menu extensions easily with the free
ShellExView program. Look for non-Microsoft items and disable them, testing
after each change.
