When you click on the Menu button look for small boxes in the top left of the menu. Remove those and see if that helps.

Hi

This also happened to me.
This is how i fixed it.

Open a terminal[Menu->Terminal]
and run this
Code: Select all
gconf-editor

click on apps->mintmenu
clear pin_menu checkbox

Lagagnon's method will also work.

cheers
