Start Menu Doesn't Stick? Not the Classic Start Menu...The New XP Start Menu...

    Yesterday I switched from the Classic Start Menu to the 'normal' XP Start
    Menu. When I click on Start the menu appears above. But when I move the
    mouse pointer up into the blue field right above the green Start the whole
    menu drops out and gone. If I then try all over again it seems to stick
    and work okay. After an undetermined time or other unknown events when I
    return and click on the Start this problem starts all over again.

    Also, if I hold the LMB down and move into the menu field the menu will
    never disappear.

    Also, this menu loss after clicking on Start only seems to happen over the
    Desktop. If I have an application open that the Start and its Menu open up
    on top of the menu stays put.

    Any ideas? Thank you.

    I am a very disgruntled XP owner! I have about zero respect for M$ dumping
    so much crap connectivity gee whiz features in their OS and the entire
    software industry only warranting the media and never the content. The
    computer is such a sucker industry no one will ever have a chance to wake
    up and smell the coffee.
