Hello BC, I am having an issue with my mouse, it's a USB Logitech optical. Although that's not important as I will explain.
First off I'd like to make very clear that the issue I am having started either overnight or when I woke up as I spilt a bit of liquid on my mouse this morning and this problem has been happening since. HOWEVER, the exact same problem is happening with another mouse on the same system and I've tried it in all different USB ports on the computer (PLEASE keep this part in mind it's not specific to one mouse)
Ok, now the symptoms. It differs on reboot, at first I had absolutely no functionality. So I rebooted the PC then I could move the cursor but clicking would do nothing. I figured at this point I had fried the mouse with the liquids, so I searched for a backup. Found a wireless Logitech hooked it up and I was having the same issue.
Could move mouse around but clicking did nothing (same problem, different mouse).
So I reboot again, now I can click everything seems fine I think the problems solved. However, I open chrome and now left clicking will open tabs in a new window, and then if I left click on the tab to view it...It will close. Same with right clicking the tab it just closes it. Also happens with bookmarks, left or right clicking a bookmark now opens a new tab and clicking the new tab closes it...
Also left or right clicking chrome settings button will not do anything. Hovering over the icon and it will get the border around it but clicking does nothing.
Highlighting text is also proving difficult, and I'm sure there will be other things I notice as the day goes on.
-I have used difference mice, in different USB ports
-I have tried safemode
-I have deleted drivers and reinstalled
-I have messed around with settings in Control Panel, as other forums have suggested
-I have cleaned the mouse(even though it's not specific to one mouse)
This is all I've really tried so far, no settings or anything were changed like I said the only thing that could have caused this was that I spilt some liquid into one of the mice when I first started using the computer today. That said, another mouse that was hiding in the closet when the spill occurred is having the same issue..????
edit:I installed FireFox and I don't have the issues there. So I uninstall and reinstalled chrome and the issue persists...............
edit2:unable to pause/move spot in videos in firefox no other problems yet............yet
