Windows 7: Mouse problems in Windows 7 (64-bit)

Mouse problems in Windows 7 (64-bit)

I run Windows 7 on two of machines. One runs flawlessly. The other ran flawlessly for about a month or two, and then I started getting a rather odd problem. The OS fails to recognize my (mostly) left mouse clicks for random periods of time, say 5 seconds to like 60 seconds. It'll work, then it'll stop, then it'll work... etc. Obviously this is extremely frustrating. Thinking it's the mouse, I tried another mouse - same problem.

Both mice are USB, but it does not seem to be an issue with the USB ports as my keyboard and other USB peripherals work fine.

Running the C2D Extreme Quad core from a couple of years ago, X38 chipset board, 4870x2.

I'm baffled on this one, hopefully someone out there has an idea. Oh, I formatted and reinstalled the first time this problem came up, and it started again within a few hours of the reinstall. All I've got installed besides my drivers are:

Firefox
AIM
ATI Catalyst Control Panel

As an update, i've discovered that it's more you can't left click "in" anything. Like, I can right click the desktop, and left click will work in the context menu.. but if i click out of that and try to click on the start button or whatever, it doesn't work.

What mouse are you running? I have a Logitech MX6100 that seems to have the similar issues. I couldn't drag and drop, it would open the file all the time. I did find I could right click and move the file or icon but then it asked if I wanted to move the file....too many clicks just to move a screen icon.

Logitech doesn't seem concerned that their drivers don't work with Windows 7. I went back to my Microsoft corded IntelliMouse

I really miss my 6100.

I had a similar problem w mice and keyboard. I changed them out and prob remained. I went into device manager and found two unknown devices in usb section. Could you check that section and see if anything looks amiss. Upload a snip would help
