MS Works is a suite of office type application not an operating system.

Your computer should have recovery partition, which can be used to reinstall Windows...
...or
You can create recovery disk...
...or
You can call your computer maker to send you one...

What computer brand is it?

Does the right click work anywhere?
If not, did you try another mouse?

Its not the mouse.

Tried different mouse?

Did you try system restore?

Also...

Go Start>Run ("Start Search" in Vista/7), type in:
sfc /scannow
Click OK (hold CTRL, and SHIFT, hit Enter in Vista/7).
Have Windows CD/DVD handy (with Vista/7, most likely, you won't need it).
If System File Checker (sfc) will find any errors, it may ask you for the CD/DVD (rarely in Vista/7 case).
