Windows 7: Left Mouse-button Issue

Left Mouse-button Issue

When I'm on-line the left mouse button won't work, although it works fine when I'm off-line. When on-lin, in order to acces a link or open a file, I have to use the right button, and then select "open" from the menu. I also can't check boxes or select options in online forms... This just started happening recently, I've restored the system back as far as possible, but that didn't help. I've also had the hardware and software ,(ie The mouse) cleared, so those aren't the issue either. Maybe the registry?...

Hi 516John,

I'll assume by "online" you mean while using a browser, such as Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox - please correct me if this is not what you mean.

When you say you've "cleared" the hardware and software, do you mean you've tried using the mouse with different browsers or different computers and the left-click works fine?

Cheers,

Walker

Yes, when using browser, and yes hooking up mouse to different system, and reloading microsoft mouse-software. thanks for any help you may be able to provide. I googeled the issue and one blog mentioned dealing with the system registry. But when I tried, the system responed with "needing the right bianary code"?

Okay, but what browser are you using and does this happen in other browsers? If so, which ones?
