ALT text stopped working, so my Sims game did too.

When I scroll over an image on the internet (say an Xkcd.com comic), I get Alt text that flashes for a split second, making it unreadable. Big whoop, I can hold the Alt key and read everything just fine for the amount of time it is supposed to be there. Crisis averted.

BUT.

Ever since this little problem started, my Sims 2 game has been screwy... in one way. I click on an object to get my little menu, and it disappears just as quickly as my Alt text on the internet. I never had this problem until about three or four months ago, and I don't know where it could have came from.

I have:
-Reinstalled my keyboard touchpad
-Ran an aniti virus, cleared every single temporary file, ran an adware program
-Reinstalled the keyboard
-Mucked around with my Internet Options
-Tried System Restore (Doesn't let me use it no matter what date I choose)

I'm completely lost as to what to do.

I run Windows XP on a Dell Inspiron 1501. My internet browser is Internet Explorer, but the problem also occurs on Firefox.
