    Problem: I have an NTworkstation (all updates and SP) that has begun to have a problem that seems mouse related. Currently, the problem is that files can not be dragged and dropped from anywhere to anywhere. I can right-click and copy and paste, but no dragging and dropping. I can't even move files to the trash.

    History of problem: the teacher who uses this computer initially had a problem in which the mouse, which should always use double-click to open, was opening and executing with a single-click. There is no where on this machine to set a single-click for the mouse (I've checked any number of places including mouse control panel, folder options, options, and desktop properties). I'm sure that it's there somewhere but I haven't found it.

    Finally, I changed out the mouse, hoping that this was a mechanical problem. This solved the double-click problem, however it has caused the drag-and-drop problem.

    Please Help,
