screen/mouse issues

Hi, all im having a huge problem "self inflicted"
yesterday while playing a game "battlefield 2 modern warfare" i noticed in main screen
that the ping was not showing.

so after researching this i discovered that i needed to run it as administrator,

now my MAJOR issue commenced, "yes i did go into administrator" and try that then right clicked game and ran as admin.

now the problem. after closing game i noticed mouse took a few clicks to open anything, then i also noticed that i cannot resize screens "place pointer on side of screen and drag open" copy paste is a real bugger also. now this morning i went to use comp and mouse was now useless! """" side note space bar makes you scrool to bottom of screen""""
this morn i reinstalled windows not a format reinstalled. " im dumb and failed to see repair option"
now all said and done i have same problem,

mouse curser moves left click at best barely works "many clicks to open anything"
cant drag drop. "drag drop option is enabled"

can some one please inform me of what i have done?

since win 98 i have NEVER encountered this ever in work or play !

First type the letters cmd
in search
do not hit enter right click and run as administrator

Then in cmd prompt type sfc /scannow

If that does not work, try this

i will try that , but this morning i have allready "reinstalled windows".

did not format, so i have a what was called a old copy still on drive.

would that be still causing my issues?
on reinstall i was not asked for my license id # .

as far as im concerned all my stuff is gone ! so not worried bout that,

If you have problems and upgrade install (as you just did) the old problems may likely persist.

Do an clean install with the upgrade dvd, including format, you should be ok.

Odd mouse issues
I have an odd problem. My mouse runs off screen when I try to go to the right scroll bar in Explorer or Firefox, and I have to pull it back to find the scroll bar. Any thoughts? I decreased the sensitivity but that did nothing. It is quite annoying.
