CANNOT OPEN PROGRAMS ON DESKTOP

I HAVE A NEW DELL XPS 430 ABOUT A WEEK OLD AND JUST BOUGHT A MICROSOFT COMFORT OPTICAL MOUSE 3000 (WIRED) BECAUSE I HATED THE MOUSE THAT CAME WITH IT. THIS MOUSE IS OK EXCEPT THAT IT WILL NOT OPEN PROGRAMS ON MY DESKTOP EXCEPT WHEN I RIGHT CLICK THEM. ANY SUGGESTIONS? I HAVE BEEN WRACKING OUT MY BRAIN FOR THE LAST 6 HOURS. THANKS
I KNOW I SHOULD NOT BE WRITING IN ALL CAPS BUT IT IS JUST SO MUCH EASIER FORMME TO READ

  1. TRY NOT TYPING IN ALL CAPS AND MAYBE SOMEONE WILL HELP YOU
  2. MAYBE LEFT CLICK DOESN'T WORK
  3. LEARN
    <-RIGHT LEFT->
    PROBLEM SOLVED
  4. HAVE YOU TRIED TURNING IT OFF AND ON AGAIN?
  5. MAYBE CAPS-LOCK DISABLES CERTAIN MOUSE FUNCTIONS
  6. Try the new mouse on another machine?
  7. NO FOR SIMPLE TROUBLE SHOOTING USING THE PROCESS OF ELIMINATION IS BEYOND THE POWER OF MERE MORTALS.
  8. USE THE OLD MOUSE, AND OR CHECK THE SETTINGS, AND OR INSTALL THE NEW MOUSE DRIVERS.
