I have recently accepted a Windows Update and it seems that after this I lost the right-hand click function on my mouse. I generally use a toolbar from the taskbar at the bottom of IE8, I can still highlight this but cannot see any sub-menu's, any ideas what could be the problem.

I have checked out your suggestion, button not checked. On reflection I have noticed that the loss of the functionality is only when I am at the desktop. When I am in a program, there is no problem.

Why not make a restore point and remove the update and see what happens. A better alternative in my mind, however, is to just use System restore to go back to before the update and see what happens.
