On a machine running Windows 8.1 64 bit, about once every few minutes the mouse will not be able to click on anything. For exampe, if a window is open in the Google browser, the red x at the top right corner turns grey and the mouse will not be able to close the window. One way to fix this is to open the task manager, (the mouse will click on task manager) click on google and then close the task manager and then the mouse will work for another 5 minutes or so.
I have tried changing the usb port the mouse is on. I am thinking of doing a repair install with the OS disk but not sure if that would help. I have tried to fix the mouse driver but I am not to sure how 8.1 works, at one point it said it was fixing something but the problem still persists.
The same problem occurs when I use Firefox instead of Chrome.
Thanks in advance for any help
