Not Responding On Mouse Click?

Usually when using an internet browser (firefox or internet explorer) and windows explorer windows, I try to click to switch tabs and it doesn't respond. It shows (Not Responding) for a split second and won't switch tabs. I end up having to click a whole bunch of times before it switches.

This same kind of thing happens with explorer windows when trying to restore them from the minimized state. It just won't respond and multiple clicks are needed before seeing any action. This has been happening for awhile now but I figure it just may be another bug

Right Click Not Responding And Very Slow?
Whenever I right click on a file such as a photo or even IE the computer goes into a non responsive mode. If I wait it out at least 45+ seconds generally the menu comes up. This is pretty frustrating. Have seen a few posts with the shellexviewer etc and started to go that route but I decided to do a restore at a earlier point and now and looking for a fresh perspective

Programs / Windows Explorer Stop Responding Whenever Click To Print
A colleague of mine using the 64bit version of Windows 7 Enterprise has been having this problem for the past day or so. No matter what program he's using, as soon as he clicks print, the program stops responding. This even happens if you try to print a test page - Windows Explorer stops responding. It's not printer specific, since this happens before you have the option to select a printer (and he has several, one local printer and a few network printers). I've tried running the troubleshooting tool, but all that does is restart the print spooler, which doesn't stop the problem.

Mouse Click Instability
i've been having a problem with my mouse, it clicks just once in a while, and, sometimes, it gets better with one window (program) but when I change to another program or desktop, it stops clicking again. It begun out of nowhere about 3 days ago. I run my pc on windows 7, I tried changing the usb port, the mouse and it doesn't work. What does help is doing a ctrl+alt+del, starting task manager and returning to windows, then, I can click on a single program and it begins to work (the mouse clicks) with it. Typing alt+tab also helps sometimes.

My xbox controller and keyboard are functioning normally. I recently updated my kaspersky to the latest version, but I tried deactivating it but I had no luck with the mouse. I'm thinking about returning to a previous kaspersky version, first, then, if that doesn't help, reinstalling the windows.

Ah, another thing that might help: i have windows vista on the same PC, same HD and, when I logged in it to see if the problem persisted, gess what, yes, the same mouse problem. That made me think of a hardware problem, but on all usb ports is odd. Can anyone help?

Mouse Click Problem
I installed Windows 7 a few months ago, everything was working fine until a few days.

A while after the computer is on, i want to click anymore neither with my touch pad nor with my external usb mouse....

The cursor moves normally but left click and right click won't work. if i do CTRL ALT DEL and cancel it works again for a while and then starts again.

The weird part, is it's not alway for the whole screen, sometimes i cannot click windows, sometimes i cannot click the tasl bar, sometimes both...

I really can't seem to find an answer to this problem, i've been thinking it might be a problem of screen refresh as the CTRL ALT DEL solves it for a few minutes, but I'm not sure... Can someone here help me please?

Mouse Not Responding Accordingly To Usage?
I have an issue about the mouse acting on its own. I've check some other threads but they seem mostly from people on laptops so it mostly rounds around the trackpad etc... I'm using a desktop and I don't know since when did the mouse suddenly works on its ownSome issues that i find happening often is:- mouse would automatically raise volume to max or to minimum since i use volumouse to adjust the volume.uninstalling it didn't change anything.- mouse would automatically "right click" and make a huge translucent rectangle.- mouse would suddenly not work at all and cant click anything though the keyboard still works- mouse would suddenly have different actions for the left button like when i open a new tab in a browser and select that tab, upon clicking with left button it will suddenly close that tab instead of selecting it- mouse would auto scroll up and down (mostly down) on anything i'm reading or browsingprobably few others but i cant remember nowI've re-installed windows many times but it would soon come back to doing things on its own. I'm virus free on this PC with Avast and a USB virus scanner.

Mouse is a PS/2 connection and new or old mouse still has the same problem. I see nothing suspicious in task manager so i really don't know why this is happening. A possibility is in a program or something i've installed but i have no idea what since all the programs i installed seems rather known to most of us. View image:programs

Sporadic Behavior Right Mouse Click?
I built a pc a few days ago. It has windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. Today when i started it and i clicked on start it also right clicked on its own. As i was typing in MS Word in the middle of a sentence when i clicked the space bar the pc acted as if i right clicked on my mouse. I ran CCleaner it did not help. I uninstalled the usb drivers for the keyboard and mouse using USBDeview that didnt help either. I uninstalled naturally dragon 11 because it was the last install i did before i noticed

Left Mouse Click Dropdown?
I seem to remember that there was a setting that I could change to prevent a drop-down from appearing whenever I clicked on an icon. Now I am presented with a drop-down that has "OPEN' as it's top item.

Focus On Mouse Click Hotkey
I was just wondering if there is a hotkey to either focus on/make active what the mouse is over or just to left click. this would be useful for me sometimes and i'm sure it is possible. I haven't seen this on any hotkey lists around though.

Can't Click Mouse Windows 7
I have the same problem with my Windows 7 PC and a Logitech trackball. This seemed to start with the most recent Windows updates for Window 7. I doubt that Microsoft gives a crap about our problem.

Keyboard / Mouse Stops Responding
I have a new computer, maybe have had it for a month.Most of the time, all of a sudden my keyboard stops working without warning what so ever, to get it work again I have to restart the computer, note that the mouse still works most of the time.If I leave the computer on over the night and when I wake up and check both the keyboard and mouse can stop working.Sometimes both mouse and keyboard can work without problem for a session.And when I check on Device Manager there is no error what so ever.

Keyboard And Mouse Quit Responding In D3?
Ive recently built a new machine about a month or two ago and I have been having an issue within the last couple of weeks where when im playing d3 the keyboard and mouse will quit responding. They both still receive power as the lights are on. Then once you restart everything will work and start playing again it could work for 10 seconds or 6 hours before it quits responding and you have to restart again.

So far I have uninstalled and reinstalled the usb controllers, ive updated the motherboard chipset. Ive also tried switching usb ports. I also have this combo hooked up to a kvm switch and when it quits responding I can flip over to the other computer and it will work fine. So that leads me to believe its a software or driver issue but as far as I know ive already reinstalled everything.

Keyboard And Mouse Not Responding With Windows 7?
I have an hdd that came pre installed with windows 7 64 bit. i recently purchased a sabertooth x79 (bios version 2104) mb and a intel i7 sandy bridge 3.2 ghz and tried to hook up my hdd to it. As it was a new mb, i had to reinstall windows, but as my windows did not come with a disk, i did it by restoring factory defaults. everthing seemed to go smoothly until windows 7 was booted and my keyboard and mouse decided to stop working. they work fine in bios and before i boot. but when windows 7 is booted they dont work. i tried 2 different keyboards and mice and in each usb slot. i also tried to boot in safe mode but it wont let me run the windows setup in that mode (and they dont respond there either).

Mouse Left Click Extremely Sensitive
System Info:
Utility version
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional , 64 bit
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 245 Processor, AMD64 Family 16 Model 6 Stepping 2
Processor Count: 2
RAM: 3838 Mb
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD 4200, 256 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 467548 MB, Free - 418674 MB;
Motherboard: Dell Inc., 04GJJT, A00, ..CN70163016006W.
Antivirus: Microsoft Security Essentials, Updated and Enabled

In the last week I've added nothing to my computer but the left clicker on my mouse has become extremely sensitive. Most times when I try to click on anything whether it be in a free cell game or on excel it acts like I clicked two or three times. I've been to "mouse" on the control panel and moved the double click to the slowest setting but no luck. Now before this I'd never been to the "mouse" on the control panel so I could not have accidentally done anything. It's really hard to do anything since I've got to be so careful hitting the left clicker on the mouse!

Right-click On The Built-in Touch Pad Mouse?
My netbook, running windows 7 starter, no longer allows me to right click. Not in programs, not in folders, not on the desktop. I was using a USB mouse (which I tested on another mechine, the right click works fine there, so its not the mouse). After this problem started I tried a second usb mouse and the right-click on the built-in touch pad mouse. None of them worked. I have tried rebooting, I tried updating the drivers on my USB mouse. I havn't tried a system restor, hoping someone might know a fix that avoids that route.

Cannot Access DVD Movie With Mouse Click
I uninstalled the Interactual and Sonic Cineplayer software because that interfered with Windows Media Player and Power DVD v7.

I set my autoplay option for the DVD drive to "Always ask" for a DVD movie.

When I insert a DVD movie I get the autoplay option for WMP or PowerDVD.

Now everything works except for one quirk.

If I insert a DVD MOVIE, cancel the autoplay option and then simply mouse click on the DVD drive I get:

"Windows cannot access the specified device. path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

Any other type of DVD/CD works fine. IT IS JUST DVD MOVIES.

I think Interactual, which want to own the DVD drive, left some registry entry whereby it tries to re-install itsellf (I REALLY hate that software).

1) Any ideas as to what the POC Interactual software left behind an how to clean it?

2) Also, why, oh why, can't the Windows error message INCLUDE the "device, path, or file" NAME in the error message? (Pet Peeve #1) Are you listening Redmond?

Mouse Click Causes Loss Of Window Focus
When I click in the window, it looses focus.

When the OS starts the mouse click work fine. After some time I start seeing this problem.

This is happening on a desktop (not a laptop). I have Kingston Trackball drivers installed by OS.

The only workaround I have found is starting task manager. I had this problem in Vista also. Was hoping Win 7 would have fixed it.
