Is your mouse an MS Intellimouse Explorer? I've had symptoms
resembling this with one of those. The most common seems to be that
drag and drop functionality stops working.
AFAIK this happens after inadvertently clicking one of the extra
buttons, or pressing the mouse wheel too hard while rotating it, or
pressing two buttons at once or so.
Just trying all the buttons one by one always fixed it.
The Intellimouse Explorer's integration in the UI seems to behave a
bit flaky: the same action doesn't always have the same effect.
For example when the drag and drop functionality in explorer stops
working, I can repair that by clicking the mouse wheel once - but
normally, clicking the mouse wheel starts a sort of task switcher (a
third variety, different from the ones you get with alt+tab and
windows+tab). But at other times, I have to double-click the mouse
wheel to get that functionality, and a single click appears to do
nothing at all.
