    since yesterday my notebook is acting up. My right click button doesn't work anymore!I try to right click on an item, nothing happens.
    Also, sometimes my computer "freezes up" where nothing on the screen moves for about 15 seconds. Is there a way to detect the problem? I've already done a few system checks & everything seems to be alright.:confused:

    Welcome to TSG, Tundra.

    What Windows version do you have?

    If Win98 you can quickly restore a previous registry, which may be a "quick fix" for this. To do it, go to start>shutdown>restart in MS-DOS mode. At the c:\windows\> prompt enter:

    scanreg /restore

    select a started registry prior to the problem. Any subsequent installs or registry changes will be undone.

    If you have WinME you have the option of doing a "system restore" or you can use a WinME startup disk, selecting "minimal boot" and at the a:\> prompt enter: scanreg /restore
