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.
