Windows 7: Mouse Drags but Doesn't Drop

Mouse Drags but Doesn't Drop

Hi there.

Ever since I added Sp1 to W7Pro x64, I've been having this quirky problem. When I do a drag, the mouse doesn't let go when I release the left button. To get it to let go, I now have to left-click, again, after having released the button the first time.

I experienced this situation in the passed, on other machines, but always so intermittently, I could never reproduce the problem myself. Now, it happens every single time I do a drag of any kind. Very annoying.

Thank you for reading my post. I hope I've been explaining myself properly.

And thank you in advance for any assistance.

Best regards,

Yosen

Wow. Now I feel like a real dummy. I had a feeling it was some kind of setting. I tried looking under 'accessibility', though. Oh well.

Thanks a lot for the quick reply!

Regards,
