Windows 7: Mouse won't select text after typing

Windows 7 Professional x64
Mouse won't select text after typing

Ok so this is pretty random. For some unknown reason my mouse is suddenly playing up since running fine since January when I built the computer.

As it says in the title. After typing something in a text box whether it be word or the address bar in chrome I can then not drag and select text. After a while it will allow me to do it again and then after typing go messed up again.

Any ideas. I haven't changed any drivers or install any software that would mess with the mouse. And it's confirmed to to be a hardware problem with the mouse as I just tried another one :/

Booted in safe mode and it doesn't happen. God knows what has changed for it to do this. Full virus scan with MSE and Malwarebytes shows nothing. And well I haven't installed/been on any dodgy websites since yesterday when it was working fine anyhow :/

Never mind. The Application Synergy used to share you're mouse and keyboard which I had recently started using again seemed to be causing the issue. Strange seeing as it had worked fine in the past
