I cannot click anything on my desktop. I can right click then click run but left click isn't working. Left click also doesn't work when exploring folders, I have to right click then click explore. I can use left click when I browse the internet and when I am gaming.
Why is left click disabled?

Welcome

I would try the following solutions
Use different mouse...
Use current mouse on different computer to test
Make sure all drivers are up to date and working in the device manager
Change the Click speed... does not work
Use different USB port.... does not work
Uninstall and reinstall mouse driver.... does not work
Change batteries if applicable
Reverse left click and right click in control panel and test>then switch back
Try a system restore

I tried a system restore and it seems to still be the same.
I reversed the mouse clicks and I still wasn't able to click.
I uninstall ed the mouse driver and I restarted my computer but it still was the same.
My Click speed is the maximum.
I tested my mouse on another computer and it seems to work fine.
I have tried 3 different mouses and they all don't work.

If you did that try this
Open another user account and try mouse there.
Run a full antivirus scan
Download and run a full scan with malwarebytes.
Try an SFC
http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/66978-system-files-sfc-command.html
Run 3 times if errors are found
Try a clean boot to diagnose and possibly fix the problem.

Try in safe mode to help us diagnose

If all else fails try a repair install.

Try the restore again to be sure and go back far enough

Hi Nate726,

That's excellent news. It was our pleasure - we're glad we could help.

Thanks for letting us know and the kind words - it is appreciated.

I wlll request that this thread be marked as solved.

And welcome to Vista Forums! Now that you know where we are, bookmark the site and post anytime you have further questions or problems or if you just want to browse and learn (especially the Tutorial section offers some excellent advice on a wide variety of topics) or even if you want to try to help answer a question if you happen to see one where you know the answer and it hasn't already been posted. While it most likely won't be us the next time (though it might), there are many very skilled, experienced, knowledgeable, and friendly people here who, like us, volunteer their time to help others and one or maybe even several will respond to your post to assist you. While there are other forums on the web that do this sort of thing, you've now found what I think is the best (and I've posted in and/or checked out quite a few) so don't lose this link - you never know when it might come in handy again.

Good luck and best wishes.
