Typing for an app makes the system menu disappear.

This is a new problem that I did not see before. When I click on the windows Icon on the bottom left side of my desktop, the system menu pops up as expected, and I am able to scroll through an alphabetically listed series of apps I can choose to run. But if I try to seacrh for the application I want by typing the name of the application, the menu goes blank and there the menu seems to be trying to load options, but it seems to go on forever. Please advise.
