Mouse Drag Event: Crash program

Nearly, I meet a painful problem, at sometime, every mouse drag event will make the app is running crash. (For example: when you IE, I select a line of text, or some time I click the mouse and drag). Everything just can fix when I restart, and I will meet again at some time

thanks :)

But im thinking that a little less now as today i noticed my roommate was also having the exact same program crashing under mouse drag problem(she also has win7 and our computers are both a little over 1yr old). We use two different mouses.. mine is view sonic wireless.. and hers is a wired mouse (i will try to ask the name later). I am currently doing a system so when that is finish i will do the clean startup recommended and let you know how it goes.. But in the mean time..are there any other persons with this problem.. are we yet to know the reason for this occuring?
