The following line is the problem:

<div id="menucloser" style="position:absolute; left:252px; top:0px;
width:99%; height:100%; z-index:2; visibility: hidden" class="hider">

This div is 252px from the left edge of the screen, plus 99% width. That'll
make it just less than 252px too wide for the screen.

You might want to use the W3C HTML validator to check your code too, as a
forest full of HTML errors will stop the page (and mouseover functionality)
from operating correctly.
