Windows 7: Cannot drag at all in certain applications

08 Jan 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home x64
Cannot drag at all in certain applications

Bit of an odd one this, has me totally lost and so far not found anything despite excessive googling...

I first noticed it in Windows Live Mail, that I could not drag an email to a subfolder, just dismissed it as a bug and used the "Move to folder" menu option instead.

But then today I tried to use Adobe Premiere CS3 and Windows Movie Maker, both impossible to use because I cannot drag any movie clips around!

Dragging works fine to select text or for moving files in windows explorer, but for some reason I cannot drag certain items at all in the above programs. There is no error message, no indication at all that I am dragging, it's just like I clicked instead.

I tried swapping over to a different mouse, uninstalled the mouse drivers etc, restarted, but still the same behaviour.

I tried quitting all running applications from task manager, still the same. I even tried enabling "ClickLock" from the Mouse Control Panel, which works fine in explorer, but not at all in the other programs.

Any ideas anyone?
