Mouse stops responding

While surfing using explorer the mouse stops responding correctly:
- right mouse button doesn't open a sub-menu.
- left mouse button is half functioning (for example, in IE, I can click links but I can't click the menu buttons)
- I can't use the middle button

I never had this problem before. Now, I have this problem frequently. it happens alot while using IE but I can't be sure if it has anything to do with it, because it affects other parts of the system as well.

current OS : windows XP
current antivirus : Antivir (the same problem occurs on another pc with Symantec antivirus)

When you change the left mouse pointer to be the right mouse pointer in the settings of the mouse, then if the right mouse button stops working, it is a software problem and reinstalling drivers is the way to go. If on the otherhand the left mouse button still does not respond, then there is a problem with the switch in the mouse. This is hardware related. Either clean the mouse or buy a new one.

Mouse buttons left right switching sticky keys


Remember you can always use the keypad in place of the mouse. Try replacing the mouse with another one. If that doesn't work, it is probably something in the software. Do a scan on the system next.

I lost file, edit, view ,history ,etc; and it doesn't show previous page or next page in upper left corner.What did I do to hide all of this?


I am assuming this is a problem with Internet Explorer. To fix this, move you mouse to an empty part of a toolbar near the top (But not right at the top) of the screen.

Right-click and you should see a drop-down menu, left click on "menu bar" and you should see you file,edit, view history buttons reappear.

Everytime i click on something my computer opens up a menu how do i get it to stop?


It's possible that your mouse has been configured so that the LEFT mouse button is performing the action that the RIGHT mouse button does on most computers, namely to open the "context-menu".

Access "Control Panel", and then "Mouse", and check the actions that are associated with each click.

Cursor and pages opening up off the right side of my desktop


This is a monitor setting. use the menu button on your monitor to shrink the screen size from side to side. The menu button usually toggles you through the settings and the + or - buttons adjust the settings.
This happens a lot if your on a small desk and bump your keyboard against a low sitting monitor.

Not responding


The Internet Explorer issue could be a lot of different things, but the first thing I usually look at when someone has an IE that's acting flaky is whether or not they have a bunch of toolbars and add-ons installed.

Are you using IE 7.0? If so, go to Tools --> Manage Add-Ons --> Enable or Disable Add-Ons

Disable all toolbars.

If you aren't using IE 7.0, try upgrading to IE 7.0.

As far as the mouse issue... do you have an external mouse that you're using, or are you using the touchpad that's located below the spacebar? Sometimes people that are using a separate mouse forget to turn the touchpad off, and accidentally brush it with their hand, causing the mouse cursor to jump around or activate an icon and such.

Microsoft wireless intelimouse explorer 2.0


Having experienced the same problem with (2) Intellimouse Explorers I analyzed the problem and found a solution after driver updates failed to correct it.

Remove the single screw inside the battery compartment, lift off the rear portion of the mouse top cover, then gently lift up the back end of the remaining shell.

Once you have the inner workings exposed, use a Q-Tip to dab rubbing alcohol on the right click button's micro switch, manually clicking it a couple dozen times to clean the button's inner workings. Do not work about shorting out the mouse, as alcohol is non-conductive, and non-corrosive. It will not harm the electronic circuitry.
It doesn't hurt to do the same for the left click micro switch and the side button switches as well, as long as the mouse is disassembled.

Next use a clean Q-Tip to clean the edges of the top & bottom housing. This is the most likely cause of the right click button failure - there are small particles of debris lodged along the edge where the travel of the right click button is supposed to depress, but cannot.

Next, turn the top cover over and move the catch on the right underside forward and push it gently downward to uncatch the edge of that latching clip. The click on the left underside is a bit more complicated and requires a gentle lifting of the rear pins and moving the left clip more to the left and downward to release it from it's locking position.
Once you have freed the actual button's cover from the rest of the top cover, clean it thoroughly with a Q-Tip swab soaked with rubbing alcohol.

While the works are exposed, check for hair and debris around the scroll wheel as well. The small plastic wheel cover lifts off starting from the read and tipping up and forward.

Carefully reassemble all parts and hte right click function should now be restored. The debris has been removed and the right click now has it's full range of travel restored.
