    Highlighting is not working properly in any programs that I use. Sometimes it will highlight only a portion of the text I select. Sometimes it will not highlight any test. Sometimes it will select all the text and I have trouble deselecting it. Sometimes if I hold the mouse button down for a while it will work. Occasionally (seldom) it will work fine for a moment. I tried to search this issue but could not find anything that seems to help. I cleaned and checked the mouse. I ran the Microsoft Office Diagnostics which did not change anything. I haven't made any recent changes that would account for the problem. Any help would be appreciated.
