    Shortcuts not working - no right click Vista Home Premium

    All of my shortcuts stopped working. I cannot use the HELP instructions
    because I can't right click on any of them!!! Also I cannot delete and
    create new shortcuts. Need help asap! Thanks!
    I found postings of this problem but no response.

    System Restore to a time before the problem started.

    Is this the only way? I'm not sure I have a system restore.
