Ok I just upgraded to Vista Ultimate for work related reasons. The thing is most everything runs but when I open I text file in notepad then right click to select all or what ever before the context menu comes up I get an error that shuts down what ever program I was running.
Jest now I ran Paint to paste a screen shot and went edit>paste but as soon as I opened the edit menu Crash! so i tried Paint.net same thing. I then right clicked the paint.net short cut and hit "run as Administrator" and I could paste the screen shot into a file no sweat.
The account is a local admin account that I am logged into at the moment. so I really do not understand. the same with the windows sidebar and a few other apps if I right click anywhere in them they crash then I right6 click the shortcut and run as admin and they work. I even tried going into the properties of Windows sidebar shortcut in the star menu clicking properties>shortcut>advanced>and checking Run as Administrator but Still get the crashes when I first reboot Vista until I specifically Start it by Right clicking and hitting Run as Administrator.
If anyone knows how to fix these problems PLEASE please help me I'm beyond frustrated and can no longer think straight on this issue. I hated vista before I even had to install it now I truly despise it. The really horrible thing is because of this problem I'm behind on a work proiject and I'f I can't suss this out and square it away I'm going to have to either pay someone else to get the proj done on time and/or lose the client/job.
I don't even know how to correctly research this issue everything I google brings up slow responding rightclick context menu probs or similar. And i Have tried those solutions just on tyhe hope and prayer that they did the trick but no joy.
I can't affrord to do a reinstall as my current Backup solution is incompatable with vista and its honestly more time i lose in an already behind-the-eightball schedule. Granted if that is the only way then i will have to do it, but that would mean installing W98SE>winXP Upgrade>Sp3>then Vista Ultimate upgrade (and I'm not even sure this system (64bit ) will take 98SE. Anyway I hope My problem was clear and that one of you fine DC'ers know a way to help I will make a donationcredit transfer to the person that gets me out of this nightmare you have my word on that.
