Well...when did your problems with ineffective use of mouse...begin?

Often, when the files are scrambled, such things may occur.

Have you tried running the chkdsk /r command...and then following that with defrag of the Windows partition?

Extract and launch the registry fix

Click YES when UAC prompt comes up

You should be able to open files properly

Good luck

Well...if you follow the suggestion from narenxp...I suggest that you back up your registry first, using a tool like ERUNT Registry Backup Tool - http://www.snapfiles.com/get/erunt.html .

The above suggestion inovlves editing the registry and you can never assume that everything will go according to plan.
