    Transparent right click box

    My PC is really pissing me off. This problem started a few days ago. When you right click something it brings up a box with all the available options, copy, print, inspect, etc. Now that box is transparent more often then not. You can see the outline of the box as if it's a window in front of the monitor. Sometimes by moving the mouse around the options will appear but not often. It also happens with my bookmark tabs.

    I'm begging to suspect my video card. I've done a virus and malware scan but they have come up clean.

    Make sure all your drivers are up to date and do the same for your browser and any other software like Flash, etc...

    First you should probably check the disk health in case it's dying and that's why your system files are corrupted.

    Use Speedfan 4.52 (the blue link in the paragraph) Download SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer
    Install it, open on desktop shortcut, click the S.M.A.R.T. tab, under hard disk select your boot disk
    At the bottom it fill say fitness and performance with some bars, hover over to get the percentage, should both be over 90% or close. If fitness is very low your disk is failing.

    Open command prompt as administrator, if you can find it in the right click menu.

    sfc /scannow

    When it's done look and see if it found anything (it won't necessarily fix it even if it finds corrupted files), restart the computer, see what it does. If that doesn't do it do:

    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    After restarts check it out, if still not working go into safe mode and run sfc /scannow again, restart.

    If STILL not let me know.

    Numbers were 88% and 93%.

    Open command prompt as administrator, if you can find it in the right click menu.

    sfc /scannow
    Doing this now.

    Numbers are good, an older drive but not nearly failing.

    Yup, especially if you don't have an SSD.

    Hmmm, doesn't seem Windows is wonked, you might skip the DISM command unless you already started and try fiddling with the UI settings. I'm not sure which ones control that but sometimes just toggling them on and off will fix something like that.

    You could try the first option here, I wouldn't mess with the registry, just toggle it on and off.
