Hello, my problem is simple (or just looks simple)... It's as title says - I can't click, or better said - I click and nothing happens, in some softs, while everything other behave normally. So I'm sure that's not a mouse problem. First time I encountered this was when I downloaded Minecraft Launcher and couldn't click on anything inside its window. I can't even click in gpg4usb (SW that encrypts any of your data with RSA key) - and that's quite a problem as I have most of my sensitive data like passwords etc. secured by this soft and I can't access them now, because program is simply ignoring my clicks! I think there is more software that would not let me click and I just don't know about it yet. I can't see the cause of this problem, because I didn't do anything that could give rise to this.
Do you have some experiences with this? I accept any advice that could help me.
PC model: ASUS N75S

Does the touchpad work normally on your laptop?
Where did you download the Minecraft Launcher from?
You may have gotten a virus in that download.
Download and run Malwarebytes and remove the launcher.

Yes, it behaves exactly as mouse does - software that "ignores" my mouse clicks also "ignores" touchpad clicks.

Where did you download the Minecraft Launcher from? You may have gotten a virus in that download.
Downloaded from highly maintained private tracker. Torrent was also from verified uploader a had a lot of seeders and positive feedback - 100% sure there were no virus packed. I also scanned files right after download there were no threats.

Download and run Malwarebytes and remove the launcher.
I removed launcher immediately, because I thought it's launcher problem/bug. Also run antivitus (ESET) scan multiple times and nothing found.

Since you downloaded a Torrent, chances are great that the program is missing some files.
BTW, this forum is opposed to Torrents, continued mention of them may close your thread. I don't care if you mention them but many Mods here believe that Torrents are for downloading Pirated Software and Games. Due to forum rules, we cannot assist with non-genuine software. Try installing a legal version of the game and see what happens.

He asked where I downloaded and I was honest about it. I do not encourage people to use it in any way. But ok, let's forget about Minecraft then. It's also happening on gpg4usb - freeware that I downloaded from official site. But I found that I can control program by keyboard shortcuts and partially by mouse (just for scrolling). I'm sure it has nothing to do with viruses, there is a high probability it's kind of software problem inside my machine.

Just a thought, have you run a system restore to a time prior to installing minecraft launcher?

Bump, I found out that this problem could have something to do with Java or XML. Does anybody know how to completely reinstall these two?

Go to Control Panel/Java (32bit) under the General/Temporary Internet files click the Settings button. Press the Delete Files.
You can also go to the Update tab and manually update Java.

I followed these steps, then uninstalled whole Java, cleaned registers and it seems that problem is solved. The culprit was Java at the end.

Thanks!
