Windows 7: Problem with left mouse button on web-sites

Problem with left mouse button on web-sites

When I'm on-line, in order to open a link or file, I have to use the right mouse button and then select "open" from the menu to access the link or file. This just started happening recently. I also can't check boxes on forms on-line either. I have Windows 7 on-board, I've restored my system, but that didn't help. So many of my programs are from downloads, that I really hate to re-install Windows... This isn't the mouse, or the software as I've cleared both of these issues. Maybe registry?

Hello !!

Lets try this go to Start > Under search type iexplore.exe -extoff
Then it will open IE without any add-ons then see whether it's working fine. Also try to reset IE to default values. Tools > Internet Options > Advance > Reset. Try with a different browser like Mozilla and see whether that works fine

Hope this helps,
Captain
