No Drag & Drop or "Open in new window"


S

Stu

Win2000 build 2195 SP4

In windows explorer I can select (but nothing happens):
Copy/Cut & paste
Drag & drop

In IE (v 6.0.2800.1106):
right click . open in new window

ATM to copy files I must move to a dos window and copy the files! To open
in a new window I must Right click . Copy shortcut then open an IE window
and paste in the address bar!

I have downloaded & installed the RPC exploit update. I have been to
windows update and am bang up to date.

Any suggestions please? Im going daft here!

Also im not alone. Nobody has found a solution for these users either:

This can happen if you are still affected by the blaster worm. Run the
tool

Thanks Evi. Tried the tool but it did not find anything. Any other ideas?

Have you done the registry check on the Symantec site too?

Have you checked your Internet Explorer and Outlook Express Versions?

Have you tried running system file checker (type sfc /scannow in the Run
box)?

If all these fail then I'm stumped too. Any other ideas anyone?
