Hi.
I start my pc.
I double click on Firefox desktop icon.
Nothing happens.
Same with Chrome,IE icon.
I go start > turn off computer > restart.
Nothing happens.
I use the small reboot button on the front panel of my computer's case.
PC reboots.
Everything works fine.

What is the make and model of this computer?

 

If this is a desktop, have you tried a different mouse?

 

If this is a laptop, have you tried a mouse via a USB port?

It's from powerc.com.
Gigabyte case and board,Crucial memory,250 gig drive,gts250 video.

I'll try different mouse if you think this may be the problem.

I have disabled the drivers for my mouse;maybe this will sort it.

Thanks for reply.

How did you disable the drivers, in the Device Manager?

 

A mouse is a plug and play device, this means that it will use native (Windows) drivers.  If you uninstall the drivers in the Device Manager new drivers will be assigned when the computer is restarted.  Won't hurt to give it a try.

My mouse has drivers in the startup menu,which I have disabled.Problem seems fixed anyway!

Maybe they aren't drivers; C/ProgramFiles/Trust/R Series Mouse/Autorun.exe
