Hi i have a T530 with windows that i connect to two external monitors thru the lenovo docking station. My friend helped me configure my laptop. I have 16mb of ram and i7 processor @2.60GHz. I also have a sshd. 

 

I'm having a problem where after a restart everything will be fine but eventually my left mouse will no longer open desktop icons. Also sometimes when i click on a tab in chrome the tab will close that tab vs switching to it. After a restart everything will be fine. These problems repeat.

 

I only use this computer for work, so it should be clean. I have run malware/virus/antispyware scans.

 

I have no way to start in fixing this problem.

 

Thanks in Advance.

Are you using the trackpad and built in buttons? Or a USB wired/wireless mouse?

It's possible that your mouse is bad. Do you have another computer you can try it on?

 

Do you have access to another mouse you can use on your laptop?

 

Does left click work when you use the trackpad?

Your mouse could be defective, try taking it apart and cleaning the click button.

I've just been working with it, but still having an issue. I notice that when my computer just boots explorer.exe takes up like 25k and then it slowly rises till about 400k memory and this is when i have the issues. I also sometimes get:

 

Not enough memory to run this program.

 

Can't open folders.

 

Open folders but get a blank folder ... even like opening control panel for example.

 

Not being able to click anywhere.

 

If i end explorer.exe and open up a new task "explorer.exe" it works for like 20 minutes again.

 

Thanks
