Today my right click function stopped working all of a sudden. Nothing was installed today, nothing changed, it just quit working. I've restarted the computer several times, and even rolled back to a restore point when the right click was working fine.

The only change recently was that Firefox updated to the newest version.

It's happening everywhere though, not just in Firefox.

Running Vista Home Premium.

Any ideas on what would cause this?

Oh, and I had been running the free AVG, but at some point Windows must have updated and overridden AVG, because Windows Live OneCare is now the antivirus.

I did reinstall AVG though, because I never had problems with them before.

Ha, I never thought of an actual mouse issue since this one is fairly new.
However, I just plugged in another one, and low and behold, right click works with it.
