IE, after many hours right-click stops working, only reboot helps

Hi,

- XP SP3

in Internet Explorer after five to six hours of work with a lot of right-click copy paste operations, right-click stops working.
Right-click still works in all other programs. Restarting Internet Explorer does not help, but after rebooting the computer everything is working normally.

Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance.

Next time clear your Temp Internet files, clear your cache, and your clip board and see if it still gives a problem.

Clearing Temp Internet files and cache doesn't help, I'll try clearing clipboard next time

I forgot to say:
- in IE all add-ons are disabled
- Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V is still working, only right-click in IE stops

Also, 5-6 hours of right-clicking to copy and paste will kill your arm. Use Ctrl+c and Ctrl+p with your left hand to split the burden between your arms :)

Ctrl+v that is, and you already knew that.. I have to remember to preview before posting.
