Highlight by holding the left mouse button, selecting text, release the mouse button,
move the mouse. The highlight is now gone?

See if the computer is stuttering or hanging a bit by releasing the button but dont move the mouse for a minute or so. then move it. does the highlite still go away.
If it doesn't go away now its a mouse,keyboard,usb driver issue most likely.
If it still goes away something in windows insatlled wrong or got messed up.

Did it ever work?
