right click highlight stays RRS feed

  • Question

  • I right click on anything, highlight and click it and it stays, just the highlighted clicked part. it hovers above everything from full screen to any other right clicks.

    I noticed that if i end desktop windows manager on task manager it goes away but that probably just resets it.

    It started occurring after i installed internet explorer 9 beta.  it doesn’t just appear in explorer it also happens on the desktop

    I noticed another post like my problem here but this is about changing the theme, iv tried that and it doesn’t work

    I’m running on windows 7 ultimate
