    Yesterday night, all was well. Today, I wake the computer from sleep mode and find that my left and right mouse buttons don't work. I downloaded X-Mouse Button Control and tried to map them back to left and right click, but it doesn't work. I mapped my mouse button 4 and 5 as left and right click as a temporary fix.
    After some digging around I discovered that clicking on left mouse button acts as "ctrl + C" and right mouse button acts as "ctrl + V". All other mouse buttons including the wheel work as they should, and so does the mouse itself.
    Anybody have any ideas?

    I have tried uninstalling the driver and rebooting and unplugging the mouse and replugging it into a different port to no avail.
    I have not used any mouse mapping programs like X-Mouse Button Control before.
