    Red face Spacebar brings up Context menu??

    Has anyone ever experienced a problem in Win98 where pressing the
    Spacebar brings up a context menu? The mouse and keyboard show up fine
    in Device Manager. Ran Scandisk and Defrag. Not sure where to begin
    troubleshooting this one? It's like the spacebar is acting like the
    right-mouse button.

    Thanks,
    Don

    Have you installed Accessibility Options? It will be in Control Panel if you did.

    You may have 'Sticky Keys' or DOSKEY activated, or another KB shortcut.
