mouse left button not selecting, cntrl alt delete only solution RRS feed

  • Question

  • I Have the same prolem with the mouse left button appearing not to work on certain links/tabs/icons at random  until i use the ALT CONTRL DELETE (WINDOW TASK MANAGER) no surprise at all to some of you!

    Tried re-installing driver (good idea but didnt work for me)

    Tried testing mouse on other computers (feel silly)

    I still have the same problem, pretty certain a full system restore will work, but i dont want to do anything as drastic. Im pretty certain its been brought upon by a virus/spyware/ad-ware thats long since been removed.

    I had a similar problem before which i eradicated using software but cant remember which software.#??? Anyone know ?... i have windows XP on sp3
