Windows 7: Laptop mouse buttons both acting as right click

Laptop mouse buttons both acting as right click

Hi All,

Today when I was on my laptop at work, all of a sudden both my touchpad buttons started behaving the same - both were right click.
I checked the right and left orientation in settings and it was correct, I also went into the Synaptics software and set all to default followed by several reboots - still the same.

Strangely enough though when I have outlook open the left and right clicks are working fine.
Also I have one of the joystick mice in the middle of the keypad with the buttons below the spacebar - they work fine. Its just the touchpad buttons that are the problem.

As above I have reset mouse pointers to default, rebooted, ran a defender and antivirus scan, disk cleanup and de fragmentation. I've also checked my startup items and everything is as normal.

I can't think of anything else to try and its driving me mad. The touch pad works fine as a normal left click if I tap it twice too.

I hope someone can help. Thanks in advance.
