Mouse problem

Have you tried the help and support prog. It deals with all hardware problems including the mouse. Use the troulbe shooter in the prog.
Hope this helps.:)

not the mouse!

It is not the mouse, I think it is some sort of tweak program maybe that I have installed because it worked ok before! But I cant find any settings anywhere to change it back!:( :confused:

does the tweak program have a "restore settings" function? it should have something like that in case something like this happens.

Gatecrasher

I had a similar problem but it was with all my drives. I was left clicking on the drives and it was opening a Search window rather than givin me the content of the drive.

The solution was on the Regedit

You can try:

Start
Run
Regedit
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
Open Directory
One click on Shell
Make sure that the default key REG_SZ is on "none"

If it is not, right click on the key, choose Modify and write none in the field......

That could be the solution but make sure that you backup your registry before doing it......

Hoping that will help.......take care
