Mouse Cursor Click Problem

When i use my mouse everything works fine and perfect. However when i try to play a game on my computer, and this happens on more than one game the mouse does not match were the cursor is. To explain lets say its a list of going 1, 2, 3, 4. Top to bottom. Well if i put my cursor on 3 it will highlight 1. So it is off by about an inch. But when im not playing a game it is wonderful
Ps- and a short question. Should i use sleep or hibernate on a desktop. Cause mine never responds when i try to wake it back up? Any ideas?

Mouse Click Ability Disable

I have a 1. 2 year-old daughter who likes to discover my laptop whenever possible. Thing is, that she is able to disable the mouse click ability just by sweeping over the keyboard; e.g. 30-40 keys pressed for a minute or two. Things do work, mouse moves, but when i go over something, it doesn't show any change or reaction for the mouse. It is if the mouse doesn't exist in the same reality as the computer -> a ghostly mouse.

It sometimes goes over in couple of minutes. Other times it stays until i restart the whole system. Today i tried ctrl+alt+del and at first there was no mouse activity either, but ~10 seconds it started working again. Any tips? How to fix-it or know the specific reason. P. S. Windows 7 pro x64

Cannot Click Taskbar In An Open Window

My taskbar is un-clickable, i had to press ctrl alt del, so i can click the start menu and application that is pinned on the taskbar. But i can click the desktop icons, but when i open it (ex. If i double click my computer) i cant also click anything even the min, max and close buttons.

I already scan for worms, spyware and virus and it detects nothing. I already check the "regedit" and no explorer.exe and iexplore.exe sub-folders are in the folder of image file execution option
I already do the sfc /scannow and the result is no error found.

Before, a message sometimes pops up saying that explorer.exe has stop from running then it restarts but still i can able to open and click the applications in the desktop and taskbar then after a week or 2, another message is popping up pwdbnk.exe is stop from running(an application for the biometric finger print).

Mouse Settings Will Not Open

I recently purchased a new laptop - sony vaio - with windows 7. My issue is that my 'mouse' settings will not open up. After i had installed a usb "mircosoft wireless notebook optical mouse 3000" which seems could have caused this, but have uninstalled it and same thing is happening being able to open the mouse settings. Also restarted multiple times.could it also be something messed in the registry. I am able to open everything else with no problem. It also shows that it is thinking (circle thing) when i attempt to open it. No error message or anything pops up.

Double Desktop Icons

I have added the most commonly used application icons to my desktop and when i press f5 or reboot i get doubles of each icon. I've tried removing one of each and then when i hit f5 they are all gone. When i check properties the target location for both "twins" are the same, yet when i open that location there is only one .exe file there. If i choose "hide" it hides both of them.

When i initially add an icon there is only 1 of that icon, until i press f5, or reboot, and then the duplicate appears. There are only 7 icons total (or should only be 7 - there's actually 14 showing!) This happens with all icons including my computer, my user file, and recycle.

There is only one user account on this computer (me) and i have administrator rights.

I am running windows 7 professional.

Any ideas on how to resolve this?

Wireless Mouse Does Not Work

I have a microsoft wireless comfort keyboard 4000 and a microsoft wireless laser mouse 5000. All of a sudden the mouse stopped working. I can see the cursor arrow on the screen but my mouse wont move it. My operating system is vista 64-bit. I have gone through all the diagnostic steps to no avail: replaced the batteries, downloaded the latest software from microsoft, changed usb ports, tried another computer and checked my device manager. The device manager tells me the mouse is working properly. It may be that the mouse is dead but i though before the burial that i would take a chance to see if anyone out there had a similar problem but solved it.

Programs Wont Open

I just recently got a dell laptop for christmas and it works perfectly but after a couple days of using it i tried to use the webcam and it would not open. I'd click on the link but nothing happened. No error messages popped up or anything. I clicked troubleshoot compatibility and then it opened but now everytime i go to use it it asks if dell webcam can make changes to the computer. Also, the volume on the videos do not work through the webcam. Today i tried opening itunes and it clicked but would not open just like the webcam. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Cannot Open Folders / Programs

Hi, ive got issues with windows 7 that are progressively getting worse. It began with live messenger, affects mozilla and has now affected opening general folders. When i attempt to open a folder, it appears as an icon in the taksbar, and when i click to view it, it expands onto the screen, but keeps moving to the right of the screen and off the side almost instantly, meaning i cannot view it. The folder/program are always active at the time, because when i have multiples open (eg watching movies in mozzila pages) i can see the thumbnails changing and moving etc.

I managed to rid the mozilla problem by completely reinstalling it, but no luck with msn, and now i cant even open my computer or other folders. However when i run windows in safe mode i do not have this problem. When i right click the icon/s on the task bar i am only given options to view frequent folders (which does not work), pin to task bar, close window and open explorer(which also does not work). Ideas?

Open Font And Use It With Other Programs Without Installing It

In previous version of windows, i have been able to open a font and use it with other programs without installing it. I haven't been able to find this capability with windows 7. How do i use a font without installing it in windows 7. This has been an option with previous versions. Before all you had to do was open the font file and then open the program. The font was then available for that one time use. In windows 7, this does not work. Anyone know a trick that i haven't found?

Keyboard Shortcuts To Open Programs

I prefer using keyboard shortcuts (ctrl alt +[letter] to open often used programs. I set the shortcuts and everything is fine until the computer turns off or a system update restarts it. Then my shortcuts stop working. Sometimes the shortcut evaporated; sometimes it is still there but does not function. Either way i have to redo the shortcuts. I've noticed this with microsoft office suite programs, it does not affect other non-ms office programs like chrome or notepad.

Getting Programs To Open In Xps Viewer

How do i get programs to open in xps viewer? I upgraded from home premium to professional just to get access to xps viewer and virtual pc. I have tried everything, including trying to download data from an external hardrive directly to xps, but nothing works. I have 3 programs that worked fine in xp but are either not available or not printable in windows 7 (the latter gets an error message of "run time error 481 - invalid display) for that one i have already tried changing the resolution etc. , But nothing has worked. How does one get programs and data to open in xps? They are not listed in programs on the start menu in xps, and every effort at moving them from 7 in the c drive to xps has been fruitless.

Mouse Arrow Moves Itself And Programs Minimizing

My mouse arrow randomly moves across the screen. Most of the time it will select something. For example it will start highlighting text in a document or it will open a link. On several occasions it will check and uncheck items in a bank rec i was working on. It will do this whether i am using the mouse or if the mouse is idle. I can also be in the middle of typing something and my cursor will move to another location. My programs will also randomly minimize or move. I have disabled the snap feature. I have dual monitors. I do not use avg virus protector. I am on a network. I am the only one in the company that uses windows 7. I use a microsoft wireless mouse and keyboard. I'm not sure what other details may be important.

Windows Won't Open Programs

Brief description: no programs load in windows 7 after installing a piece of software. The programs are visible in processes tab in task manager but not in applications. The only thing i can do is system restore to a point before the install but then that means i can't use the internet dongle. Any ideas? 

Detailed description: i have bought a brand new dell vostro 3500 with windows 7 downgrade to xp. Xp was originally installed on the laptop but i upgraded it to windows 7. I use it on my business network so that meant setting it up on the network with the computer name and an account on our server. The server is running windows 2003. The other day i installed an orange internet stick to be able to go onto the internet. Everything worked fine straight after the install but when i turned the laptop on the next day things weren't right. Everything loads up fine the background, the task bar and all icons. The problem is when i click on a desktop icon it looks like its loading (by the loading circle) but nothing actually happens.

If you click on the start button you can navigate through the menu but when you click on an application it wont run eg (calculator, office) if you right click the task bar and choose task manager that won't open either. You have to press ctrl+alt+del to get to task manager. What it shows is no applications running but in the processes tab you can see the calc.exe iexplore.exe and any other application you have clicked on.

The only way that i have been able to fix this is restoring the laptop to an earlier restore point before i installed the internet modem. The internet modem works on another dell laptop with windows 7 on it so i can't see it being the modem plus an application that is loaded on the other laptop creates the same problem as this. If anyone has any ideas i'd be most grateful.

Things i've tried: uninstalling the program, diagnostics checks for hardware (passed), restore to previous point (worked but when reinstalling the device same thing occurred)any ideas?

Unable To Open Or Run Virtually Programs After Windows Update

Unable to open or run virtually all programs after windows update kb976002 'browser chooser' was automatically installed. I had, clearly unwisely, allowed windows updates to be installed automatically. An update installed itself on 15 mar 2010, kb976002 calling itself browser chooser.

It cannot be uninstalled and from reading other forums i gather it could be something that has been forced in by the eu. Its purpose is probably to allow users of two or more internet browsers to choose how they employ them, but ever since it installed itself i have been unable to open or run most other programs including ms office, skype, itunes, while others can only be opened if selected to be so as an administrator. If i could, i would uninstall this update. Any similar faults out there?
