Hi, my problem is that when I click, for example, "Start" or "File", in various applications it makes a clicking sound, this may be the result of a virus I recently got rid of, I'm not sure. Also, the drop-down menus have a gray background (instead of the default white), such as when I click "File" or "Edit". Any help is appreciated on this matter.

Creig, For the clicking sound go into your Control Panel and open Sounds and Audio Devices. Under the Sounds tab scroll down to Windows Explorer> and change Start Navigation to [None] using the drop-down arrow button, click Apply/OK.

For the gray background on the drop-down menus, right click your Desktop, choose Properties, under the Appearance tab click the Advanced button, under "Item:" use the drop down arrow button and choose "Menu" now to the right you'll see "Color 1:" just use the drop down arrow button and choose "White", then OK/Apply/OK your way out.
