    Desktop Icons - View screen does not popup when I right click desktop


    I used the batch files “Auto Arrange icons OFF and Align icons to grid OFF" and "Auto Arrange icons ON and Align icons to grid ON". After restarting my computer, when I right click on my desktop, the View box does not pop up. What happens is the screen flashes, goes black, the icons reappear, and then nothing happens - no View box.

    I’m wondering if I need to delete the strings added to the registry and return everything to it’s prior state, or if that would make matters worse. Anyway, I’m not confident that I know how to delete those strings added to registry.

    :)
