Not sure if this is the right forum or not so I apoligize if i guessed wrong
I have a Toshiba labtop that was working fine until yesterday. My problem seems to be with my built-in mouse I'm having trouble making my computure recognize when I click buttons. For example when I try to click the send button in my email it wont do anything or if i tried to change my font above it wouldn't let me. I'm still able to click links but not "buttons" It leads me to beleive it's some sort of weird virus but i've scanned my computer and it's found nothing ( I have norton antivirus). I can sometimes get around this by tabbing to the button and hitting enter but this doesn't work on all websites. It's a frusterating problem that doesn't seem to have an easy answer. I probably didn't explain myself very well but any help/advice would be appreciated
I've run both spybot and adware and removed anything it found. I've also updated my antivirus but it's found nothing. I tried to get that Microsoft Antispyware Beta but couldn't download it because it was unable to "validate" whatever that means. thanks for getting back to me so quickly though
I've actually been able to establish that it's an internet explorer problem. When i use netscape navigator it works fine (don't know why i didn't try this sooner). Any advice or should i just uninstall/reinstall and see if that works? (although i'd rather not i have a lot of favorites stored)
