Windows Vista - Right Click loss of Desktop and start menu

\015 After starting windows Visa Home Premium every thing appears to load ok in a normal process.Infact running programes from icons on the desk top or from icons under StartAll programs menu gives no issues.However, selecting a program from the recent program list or right clicking the mouse on the screen or any file causes the following error report explorer.exe - fatal Application Exit which reports "the specified module could not be found C:Program FilesCommon FilesAdobeAdobe Version Cue CS4 Client\004.0.1version Cue.DLL"On acknowledgeing this by clicking OK all of the desk top icons are lost along with the bottom menu bar and the start button. A runing program will remain.The only way I can get back is to open Windows Task Manager and close down.I have run RegCure and tried resetting but am getting no where. I have asked Adobe who are looking into this but the chances are that one party will blame the other.Am contemplating rebooting Vista but would like to solve if possible.Couple of other bits that may or may not be of use with two applications running (from the task manager) the total processes runing is shown as 98, CPU using around 38% with a physical memory of 58%. The physical memory MB is 2045 of which 1254 is cached and 29 free.The PC is Packard Bell IPOWER 8850 Desktop PC Main Specifications \342\200\223\342\200\242 Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E6600\342\200\242 2.4GHz\342\200\242 4MB Cache\342\200\242 1GHz FSB\342\200\242 640MB NVidia GeForce 8800GTS Graphics\342\200\242 Water Cooling System\342\200\242 Genuine Windows Vista(TM) Premium\342\200\242 Massive 320GB Hard Drive\342\200\242 Dual Layer DVD ReWriter Drive\342\200\242 2048MB RAM Memory\342\200\242 160GB Net Store 3500 Strangely the right click has just worked within Internet Explorer allowing me to copy and past the above details from the HP site.Can you help?\015
