When selecting text, or a window to move, holding the Left mouse button doesn't seem to be maintained. For instance, Left click to select a window for moving may work but generally generates a Double-Click, which maximizes the window (Double-Click speed is set to medium on XP). Selecting text, Left-Click, selection begins, then drops selection in the middle of dragging, then picks up selection in the middle of the drag.

You haven't said what kind of mouse you have or whether it used to work. I'll offer some suggestions for the most common problems: If it used to work but now doesn't, try a system restore back to when it did work. If that doesn't work--are you using a wireless mouse? If so, are the batteries fresh and are they inserted correctly? If you are using a wireless mouse, have you pushed the little "connect" button on the bottom? You haven't said, but is the other mouse a wireless one or a USB mouse? If your USB mouse doesn't work, try another USB port. If you go into the device manager, do you see a "human interface device" or a "mouse" listed? If so, it will tell you the system recognizes the device. If that is missing, there is a good chance the mouse is dead.
Highlight the text you want by holding down the left mouse button and dragging across until you reach the end of your selection. Then press CTRL-C to copy the selection to the clipboard and leave the text in place, or CTRL-X to copy the selected text to the clipboard and remove it (cut it) from the document. Copying is handy if you want to duplicate the text somewhere, and cutting is for when you want to move it to some other place. Once you've copied or cut text to the clipboard, put the cursor where you want to paste it and press CTRL-V. This will insert the text from the clipboard at that location. The text is still on the clipboard, so you can move the cursor and CTRL-V to paste it in other places as well.
