Outlook 2003 right-click doesn't work

Hi,

Hope somebody can help me with this one.

Right-click on a message doesn't work anymore. I don't get the menu
that usally shows up when right-clicking a message.
If my messages is sorted in groups, I can right-click the headline in
each group and then I get the menu where I for instance can choose to
delete all the messages in the group, but I still don't get the menu,
if I right-click on a single message.

I see the same problem in the calender.
If I right-click an event which is registrated in my calender, then
again the menu doesn't appear as it used to do.

Does somebody have an idea why, and how to solve this problem?

Thanx in advance

rgds.

Does it work again after a restart of the computer?
Does it work when you use Outlook Safe Mode?

No, a restart does not effect the problem.

I didn't know the safemode function in outlook. But I found out how to
perform it.
In safemode there was no problem, everything worked perfectly, and
afterwards when I tried "normal mode" everything still worked
perfectly.
So it seems that my solution was: Go to safemode and back normal.

Thanx a lot - this little problem has been annoying for quite a while.

Best rgds.

Surprised to see this problem has been around for the last 6 years. It's just occurred recently on my PC. Starting in Safe Mode made no difference and subsequent normal restart hasn't changed anything. In other words, the above solution didn't work for me. I'm using Office 2003 with Windows 7 Home Premium N SP1. Anyone got any ideas?

Problem solved. Somehow Outlook in my Office 2003 suite had got corrupted. The problem described was just the first in a progressive litany of faults that emerged over a period of days. Eventually I had to employ the services of a professional who spent many hours trying to repair then re-install Office. An absolute nightmare since I had already re-installed Office at least once when I upgraded from XP to W7. Apparently Microsoft don't like you re-installing their products too often even if they are licensed and you're re-installing on the same machine. Grrrrrrrr!!!!
