Windows 7: Mouse Pointer issues

Mouse Pointer issues

Ill get right to it...

Hardware Installed New ram, is the only thing I have done, and the problem started last week, about a week after I put the ram in.

Software: The new windows 7 updates, other then that nothing

All of a sudden my mouse only Left clicks on things it wants to. I can select icons on the desktop, but I cant click the start menu or the "X" to close a window, nor drag windows. Sometimes it can be the other way.

This is very Irritating, I just restart and hope it works the next time.

I can confirm this issue, since I am using a laptop and both external and touchpad double tap, and clicker have the same issue.

Vista Ult 64 bit Seven Ult RTM x64

First I'd try the Sys. File Check. Info here if needed: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Since you have not installed any software other than updates, you could try a system restore to a point before this started. You'll probably have to reinstall the updates. Do that one at a time in case one of the updates proves to be the problem.
