For some reason, on my desktop, when I left click anywhere it acts as I have just right clicked and gives me a drop box (You know, arrange icons by, properties.. ect.)

Anyways, when I RIGHT click, nothing happens, not even when I have a browser open..

I checked my mouse settings in Printers/Other hardware, and nothing seemed out of the ordinary, I rebooted twice and it still does it. Anyways.. Thanks for any help in advance

open your task manager and check the processes running.

if there is one that says reverse or something like that then end that process.

the same thing happened to me and this solved the problem permenantly :thumbsup:

Corruption of the mouse drivers can also cause this. Try uninstalling the mouse drivers and then installing the latest version.

The mouse should be under "Mouse" in the control panel, not under printers.

Do you have a standard ps2 mouse installed or some kind of specialized mouse that may have come with its own software?

See if you can borrow a mouse from a different computer and check to see if it does the same things.

Just a question to doublecheck:

In your Mouse Properties in the Control Panel, is there a checkmark in Switch primary & secondary buttons, under the Buttons tab?
