Windows 7: Hold Mouse Button = Not Responding For Audio Daw

Hold Mouse Button = Not Responding For Audio Daw

I cant figure out what this is. When ever I hold any of the mouse buttons in any daw app I get a not responding message. Its like the screen just freezes at its current state, the audio keeps going in all, then when I release the button everything goes again. Its only on stuff you slide or knobs of sorts. I made two videos in case anyone doesn't understand what I mean. At first I thought it was a dragging issue but its just holding any mouse button. Notice the not responding message at the top of the windows.

One possible explanation is that one of your DAW apps has installed some sort of filter which is hooking the WM_*BUTTONDOWN message handler in the default window procedure. In other words, Windows has a standard (default) way that "mouse button pressed" events are handled, but that can be intercepted and modified by an app bent on doing so.

You might want to try uninstalling all of those apps as a test. If the problem is then no longer evident, put them back one by one until you notice a reoccurrence.

Why does shutting down the computer, removing the AC Adapter, removing the battery (if it is a laptop), and holding down the power button for 30 seconds fix problems in one's computer. I was recently corrected in a post of mine that this does not actually do anything unless one removes the 3 volt...

PC randomly freezes which forces me to hold the power button.
I've got this problem for a while now. Sometimes, out of nowhere my whole computer crashes. And sometimes it doesn't even start up. I've attached one of the latest dumps, the only crash that generated a dump because it's a freeze, not a BSOD or a crash.
