    Today I tried to delete a couple of items from the desktop, using the
    tried-and-true right click-delete method, but it didn't work. The only
    thing I've done intentionally since it last worked was to download last
    week's updates. Anyone else have this problem?

    Try dragging the icon to the recycle bin...

    Thanks for the reply, Dave. It turns out that the problem that the
    drop-down menus have turned into wheedle-coax-threaten-down menus with
    no indication to that effect. I don't know if this is an option that
    have accidentally changed or if was some MS person's idea of an
    "improvement". Whichever, I want the drop-downs back.

    I have no idea what "wheedle-coax-threaten-down menus" means, but I
    could easily suspect that malware has entered his computer.
