Hello,
In the last 2 days I have been having a problem with scrolling and drag and drop.
Normally I can click and hold onto the scroll bar in programs (Word, IE etc) and move it as I need.  Same goes with dragging and dropping windows, files etc.  Now I am having problems with both tasks.  For example I will click a file to move it somewhere else on the desktop...the file may move part way then suddenly be let go.  Same for scrolling.
Is this a mouse problem or software?  Any help?

Thanks

Give you mouse a clean first.

If that doesn't fix the problem go into the Control Panel, double click the mouse icon and follow the trouble shooting instructions.

Thanks,
Think I have figured it out now.  I swapped the buttons (through control panel) and it seems that the left button must be screwed.  I connected a different mouse and all is fine

Thanks
