So my computer is starting to act up, recently certain websites in Firefox do not work and I have to restart Firefox. Chrome has stopped working at all. I when I right click and try to get into properties on the desktop it loads but doesn't come up, the same happens when I try to get into my computer properties. The same thing happens when I try to get into various programs in the control panel (I was trying to speed up my mouse because it went slow, and the mouse won't load when clicked).

I've done spybot, malaware bytes and windows scans, but nothing has come up. You guys have been helpful in the past, so I'm hoping you guys can help again.

System manufacturer and model?

Have you tried running the chkdsk /r command?

Any error messages?

Have you tried a replacement mouse?

Dell XP Media

Yep

Nope

Mouse is something I can live with, I'm more worried about getting into properties

I suggest taking a look in Event Viewer...for errors crying for user attention.

Then...I would say that you have system problems which are greater than concern over mouse functionality.

I would suggest a repair install of XP as the next effort to correct whatever is wrong. If the issues continue beyond that, I would guess that you have either malware or hardware issues.
