    Hi
    This is a common problem I've been having ever since I've started using VoIP programs like mumble and TeamSpeak. My thumb buttons are usually bound and suppressed to push-to-talk and when I press one and right click with my mouse at the same time, my mouse can no longer click on anything, I can still move the cursor around and highlight things but no clicking. Usually to remedy this I would ctrl+alt+del and open and close task manager which would fix it until it happened again.

    CPU: i5-4690K 3.5ghz not overclocked
    GPU: GTX 970 4GB vram
    Mobo: ASrock Z97
    RAM: 12GB
    OS: Win 8.1
    Mouse: Logitech G400S ( but this happens with all mice I use)

    By default, Windows typically doesn't recognize the extra buttons on the mouse, so I'd suspect an issue with the Logitech software.

    This was an issue with a previous mouse as well, an Anker brand mouse with it's own software.

    Likely a software conflict somewhere. After my comments above I realized that my thumb button is recognized by Windows and I use it as the back button while browsing. So it apparently is recognized. If you've remapped it to another function in an application, it could be causing a conflict. Pressing multiple buttons or keys shouldn't have any affect (aside from some unintentional ones) unless they are mapped for a function or there is a conflict.

    Close all open applications and test to see what happens. You may need to run msconfig and disable all startup items. That will at least determine if it's software related.
