Do you mean that the pointer moves on the screen, but that you can't click on/select things?

You may just need to re-install your mouse/touchpad drivers. Go into the Device Manager (in Control Panel). Go to Mice and then right click, select uninstall. Do for both your mouse and your trackpad. When complete, shutdown. Disconnect your mouse and restart. Once the system is fully restarted, reconnect your mouse and let Windows re-install the drivers.

Yes that s correct. I can temporary fix the problem by Ctrl-Alt-Del and selecting "Task Manager" it then lets me click. This only works for short periods of time.

That means that there is a problem starting those devices. Probably can be fixed by the procedure I sent you earlier.

It sounds like explorer has crashed. It's not your mouse.

Open the task manager-->end the explorer service-->go to file-->new task-->type explorer.exe-->run.

Did this work?

Since Windows is have trouble initializing your pointing devices (as indicated in your Device Manager), seems to me that something else may be going on. Do you know when this problem started happening? Did you change anything just before these issues popped up?

Also, is Windows fully up to date (Windows Update)? What make and model of laptop/notebook are you using?

That only solved the problem as going to Task Manager did for a limited time.

It sounds like you have some corruption in your install. Try performing a windows repair.

You may also want to check the event viewer, to see if it's logging some errors. It may give you the source of what is crashing, causing it to stop responding.
