So I have a strange issue where the mouse stops working. I see the arrow move across the screen and it responds to left clicks on my browser for example. The issue is, it does not work anywhere else. For example if I move the mouse over the icons over the taskbar, I see them highlited which means it is responding but ramdomly it does not respond. I minimize my browser and try to left click and right click on my desktop and nothing. What I do to fix this is I bring up the taskbar with ctrl+alt+del and hit esc. I do this about 3-4 times and them the mouse works again. I've been using windows for years and this is something totally new. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
