This keeps happening and driving me nuts

This is driving me mad! Recently, when working in Maya, this icon pops up next to my pointer mouse and it doesnt let me right click to get the normal menus. It goes to some strange menu instead that has "Home" at the top which takes me back to center grid.

Why does this keep happening and what is it?

Heres an update...

so I cant figure out how the icon shows up, but it also gets locked when the icon is NOT there...and heres the only menu I can access:

I cant select anything or do anything else.

Sorry to be a pain...but this keeps happening and has me stuck in the mud. I can't finish my project which has a deadline. But here's some more details...

It seems to be happening when I'm extruding (it does happen other times) and when I hit the G key to repeat...then it just gets stuck. It doesnt let me select anything and the ONLY thing I can do is right click and it bring up that menu that I posted above. I'm not doing anything out of the normal except extruding, hitting G to repeat, then it gets locked. And the weird thing is, I can hit G to repeat a few times then it happens, or it happens the first time. I cannot pinpoint this issue.

I tried deleting all my prefs but that did not help.

Can you switch back to basic tools using QWER keys?

Yes, but I still cannot select anything. I can highlight faces when I hover over them since Im in Face Selection mode, but I cannot click on any of them to select them. Nor can I click on anything else.

I have been working in Viewport 2.0 to see all my textures...changing back to Default Quality Rendering seems to have fixed my issue for now.
