Toshiba U205 Notebook mouse highlights and freezes

I have a Toshiba U205-S5022 notebook. It constantly freezes and the mouse will not work or the mouse highlights everything in blue.  When it does this in in my email program,  I cannot select to send email.

I just did a complete restore and have not added any programs.

Most likely your laptop is overheating and shutting down to protect itself. Is the fan running on high most of the time? That would indicate your laptop is running hot. Toshiba made a huge mistake on this model by covering the vent holes for the cooling fan on the bottom of the laptop with a label indicating the model, part number and serial number. It is a gray sticker located on the left side between the hard drive access cover and the battery release slide #2. You can remove this label completely or, if you wish to retain the information for future reference, removing the sections that do not have any important info (more than half of the label) should do the trick. You will notice that not only does your laptop not freeze up anymore, it will also run much cooler and quieter.
