Right click menu stops working for one user on a 2008r2 terminal server

I have a 2008r2 terminal server that about 40 employees use on a daily bases. One user loses the functionality to access the right click menu within office 2010 every day but no other user has this problem. I have deleted the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\Data  registry key based on a quick google search but that does not fix the problem.

One user out of 40?  Kill them.  Or buy them a new mouse.

Seriously though, have you tried recreating their user profile?  Does it happen if they launch office in safe mode?

I just ended up deleting  the user from the server and rebuilt the profile.

So you followed my advice and it fixed your problem, and that's not helpful?
