Alright, I've attached the .txt.

At least I think that's what you asked for.

Excellent. Now:

WIN | type MSCONFIG | ENTER | STARTUP tab |
uncheck ALL except for:
SynTPEnh %ProgramFiles%\Synaptics\SynTP\SynTPEnh.exe

egui "C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET NOD32 Antivirus\egui.exe" /hide /waitservice

Apply and oK buttons and RESTART your computer.

You haven't deleted anything this way, but rather told Windows that you didn't want those programs to run at startup time.

Oh yes, WIN is the key with the Microsoft flag on top.

Alright, that has been done

EDIT: The problem persists. I still have an issue clicking out of windows onto the desktop and taskbar by the way if you're curious.

It just doesn't register the clicks, the icons on the taskbar do not even highlight, or react as they're supposed to.

I posted this above, but I'll re-post in case you missed it.

It's at completely random times as well. I definitely believe it has to do with my DeathAdder mouse, but I've not a clue as to why it would be doing this.

Not good.

Clear out your event logs, then reboot your computer.

Go into Event Viewer and see if there are any critical errors listed.

CLEAR EVENT LOGS


To delete those event logs, you can:
Copy and Paste following into Notepad.
Save as ClrEventLogs.BAT (or another name but extension must be BAT)
Navigate to ClrEventLogs.BAT using Windows Explorer
Right-click on ClrEventLogs.BAT
Click on Run as Administrator


@echo off
FOR /F "tokens=1,2*" %%V IN ('bcdedit') DO SET adminTest=%%V
IF (%adminTest%)==(Access) goto noAdmin
for /F "tokens=*" %%G in ('wevtutil.exe el') DO (call :do_clear "%%G")
echo.
echo goto theEnd
:do_clear
echo clearing %1
wevtutil.exe cl %1
goto :eof
:noAdmin
Exit


To run Event Viewer:
WIN | type EVENTVWR.MSC | ENTER
let the event viewer populate.
After that, Right-clcik on Critical thee in the center area and choose
View all instances.

See anything interesting there?

No critical errors, but some warnings: 2 of them, they weren't important LMS and WLAN.

This mouse thing blows my mind. I have no idea what to think. I've had it happen once before, but I'm not sure how I fixed it. I want to say I just reinstalled the drivers, but that's not working this time.

I'm going to reinstall the drivers once more and maybe try a different USB on my laptop for my mouse tomorrow. I don't know. The port is working fine according to my Device Manager.

Just tell me what you think and I'll check back here as soon as I'm on tomorrow. It's really late, so I'm going off for the night.

Thanks for the help anyways. Hopefully we can figure it out tomorrow.

Sleep can work miracles. Who knows maybe the mouse needs some rest.

Win7 Ultimate 64bit
 
 

i found this via google and just created an account to post here. i have EXACTLY the same symptoms!

my system was runnig fine with win Vista. i did now format and install windows 7 64bit, and am getting this problem. the symptoms are exactly the same. i first thought it was the mouse, but it seems to be software related.

it seems to only occur when i have TS3 running. TS3 will stay in the foreground, i cant click on symbols, clicks wont react, i cant "drag" windows on the desktop after i win+d. the way to get it running again is ctrl+alt+del, press "task manager" twice, then it reacts again (for a random amount of time. sometimes it bugs out right away again, sometimes it works quite a while). i tried the CCleaner method, to no success. when it occurs it seems like the mousewheel is spammed all the time (pressing, not scrolling), similar to OP describing his button 5 to be "spammed".

My hardware:

Logitec G5, newest setpoint
ASUS P5Q deluxe
(Dual core prozzi
radeon HD 4800)

all drivers are the newest. im pretty confident the problem occurs only when running the TS3 client (64 bit, newest version). i did reinstall TS3, but it wont fix the issue! i hope we can find a solution

kind regards
th4nir

edit: aha! i can reproduce the problem and specified it: it occurs when TS3 runs. BUT: if i close logitec setpoint before i start TS3, the problem does not seem to occur! i cant say that 100% yet because i couldnt test enough, but i highly suspect some sort of incompability between logitech setpoint and TS3! @OP: try closing your mouse-software task and tell me if the problem still occurs!
