Specs: Windows XP
the right side of my start menu is blacked out and I am also having issue with selection boxes missing. If I click where the box should be the item will highlight but the entire right side of the start menu is completely black

Not an ideal solution but look at line 167 at this site:
It will change your Start menu to classic view which may get you out of the problem but leave you with something that looks a bit like Win98 start menu instead of XP.
There is an Undo fix there as well and that just might restore your XP menu to correct function.
