Windows 7: Mouse won't select text after typing

Mouse won't select text after typing

Ok so this is pretty random. For some unknown reason my mouse is suddenly playing up since running fine since January when I built the computer.

As it says in the title. After typing something in a text box whether it be word or the address bar in chrome I can then not drag and select text. After a while it will allow me to do it again and then after typing go messed up again.

Any ideas. I haven't changed any drivers or install any software that would mess with the mouse. And it's confirmed to to be a hardware problem with the mouse as I just tried another one :/

Booted in safe mode and it doesn't happen. God knows what has changed for it to do this. Full virus scan with MSE and Malwarebytes shows nothing. And well I haven't installed/been on any dodgy websites since yesterday when it was working fine anyhow :/

Never mind. The Application Synergy used to share you're mouse and keyboard which I had recently started using again seemed to be causing the issue. Strange seeing as it had worked fine in the past
