Windows 7: Mouse clicking does not work properly

Mouse clicking does not work properly

This is urgent,I could barely even make this thread with only a keyboard
Just today out of nowhere and for seemingly no reason mouse clicking is not responding correctly
sometimes I boot my pc and I can only click on the taskbar and nowhere else (clicking icons or rightclicking doesn't work at all)
sometimes clicking works fine then suddenly it doesn't at all
other times I can only click on icons,open folders and launch programs but not close or move them at all and taskbar is not clickable at all
It varies every time I reset the pc

Before anybody says "Try a different mouse",don't give me that,I already tried 5 different mice and this is definitely from the pc

Have a look in Device Manager & see if there are any yellow warnings on Mice & other Pointing Devices. If there no warnings Uninstall the Mouse Driver, shut down the computer & restart it & Windows should reinstall the Mouse Driver, which may fix the problem if the driver has become corrupt.

Is the mouse wired or wireless?
If it's wired, I had once the same problem. Easy to fix.

I use wired mice
But please don't think it's from the mouse it's self,like I said I tried 4 different mice at home and this problem is definitely from the computer

You said that you tried different mice. Did you also tried a different USB port?
Is only the right click that isn't working or also the left and the wheel. Does the pointer moves on the screen smoothly?

It doesn't matter what mouse I use,I already said I tried with 4 different mice I have at home and the problem comes from the computer it's self

Opening and closing windows sometimes does not work,clicking on/moving icons sometimes also does not work,in general operating with the mouse is impossible

Is the mouse plugged directly into a USB port on the computer, or is it connected via a USB hub. If you are using a hub try disconnecting the mouse from it & plug it directly into the computer.

Have you tried a different USB port as Megahertz07 has suggested?.
