Windows 8.1 Pro RTM x64

Hi whiskeryron and welcome to W7 Forums

Could be a hardware failure of the mouse, where it still works (as in being able to guide the cursor on the screen) but not as regards recognising the operation of one or more of its buttons or wheel.

Probably easier to replace than try to repair.

Thanks for your reply, I have tried 2 other mice on my P/C ( both USB & Wifi ) all showing same problem, I therefore do not think it is the actual mouse playing up.

Sometimes you need to reinstall the mouse software to get the functions back.
