I recently started having trouble with my mouse. I can't think of anything different that I did to cause it. I am running Windows Vista and using a USB mouse. The mouse doesn't freeze up totally, but when I first open my laptop and start to use it after a few clicks, usually in internet explore - but it has happened in other windows as well, I can't click on anything. If I point to a link it won't let me click. The solution - CTRL- ALT- Del and then cancel and all is well for the session. It is just a little annoying but I am worried that it is a symptom of something more serious, but am not sure.

Hi,

Have you tried a different mouse (if ones available)

Try updating the drivers for the mouse or uninstalling and reinstalling if no updates are available.

I haven't tried a different mouse but I have noticed that when the USB mouse can't click on stuff neither can the touch pad on the laptop. If I don't have the USB mouse pluged in than there is no trouble with the touch pad mouse. I will try messing with the drivers. Thanks

No Problems, just for other members reference did you update the drivers or reinstall them?

It turns out that I never actually had the driver install, it must have been working from a general vista driver. So I went to logitech's website and installed the driver for the first time.
