Hello Everyone,

I'm trying to figure out an issue that just started happening in the past two days.

The issue is: my mouse clicks won't work on programs or on the desktop. I can move the mouse around, but the click don't work (for example, I can't click in Chrome, task manager, or desktop). The clicks only work on the taskbar (minimizing/maximizing). However, I'm able to navigate with the programs using my keyboard.

It's a really odd problem. Additionally, I would like to add that I have two mice available (bluetooth and touchpad) and the problem occurs for both. As such, I think the problem is not a hardware related issue in regard to the mouse itself.

My first thought was a virus/malware; however, I perform viruscans daily. I also ran scans from ad-aware and malwarebytes and neither program found anything. According to both, my system is clean. Additionally, mcaffee didn't pick anything up either.

Restarting doesn't help (in fact it can happen right after I reboot).

I would appreciate any help that you can provide on this issue. I'm completely

Boot into SAFEMODE w/ Networking and test both.

Update touchpad drivers.

Try another user account. Activate Hidden Admin for test - Hidden Admin Account - sysnative.com - MVP

Check in with the Reliability Monitor - see what installed ~2+ days ago -
START | type perfmon /rel

Keyboard & Mouse won't work
I am using XP and only have USB ports for keyboard and mouse. Keyboard and mouse stopped working. Have tried other ports, other mice and no luck. Upon booting up a message shows briefly that says, "keyboard disabled." Cannot get in to safe mode. Any suggestions?
