For some reason I cannot click and drag with my right mouse button. The left mouse button can drag fine, and when I invert the settings so the left mouse button performs the functions of the right mouse button and vice versa, they both work fine, which is what really confuses me.

Any ideas on what is wrong?

Also if I hold down the right mouse button and let go, the right-click registers when I let go. And if I swipe my mouse over an icon and time the right-click just right, I can move it slightly with a split-second drag.

Mostly it matters in games, because I can't aim down the site of a gun by holding the right button down, and I have to use the buttons on the side of the mouse instead, which can get annoying.
