Okay, I don't really know the causes at all of these problems, whether it is viruses or just problems with my computer...
My first and biggest problem is, I can't click and drag at all, on the desktop, on movie maker, in folders, nowhere.
Another problem I am having is running most java based programs such as audacity, I open it and it shows up un the bottom, but when I right click and hit restore, it comes up, but I cant click on anything, I have to end the process with task manager to get out of it.

I would more like to solve the first one, but if you have info on the second one, that would be appreciated.
For more info, just ask.

Maybe there's a problem with your mouse. Have you tried another one? Or the same mouse in a different port.

Right click on the C drive in Explorer and go Properties > Tools > Check Now (under Error Checking). Check both boxes then click "Start Now". A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer. Restart the computer and Error Checking will run automatically after the restart. After itís finished it will restart into Windows automatically.

Try the fix at Kelly's Korner.

Enable Drag and Drop - #233 on the right.

Right click on it and save the .reg file to your desktop. Then, double click on the file icon (on your desktop) to merge it into your registry. You may need to reboot your computer for the changes to take affect.

With any fix like this you should create a new restore point and backup the registry first. For backing up the registry I like to use ERUNT.

Right click on Start button > Properties > Start Menu > Customize > Advanced, under the Start menu items make sure the box against Enable dragging and dropping is checked.

Try this:
  • Go Start > Run and type "regsvr32 ole32.dll"
  • Go Start > Run and type "regsvr32 /i shell32.dll"
  • Restart the computer

  • Click Restore the previous Windows configuration, and then click OK.
  • Follow the instructions to complete the restoration process.

Dialog box? The add/remove is a list of programs and "microsoft internet explorer" is not listed.

My bad. Those instructions are for Windows ME. What version of Internet Explorer do you have?
