I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I recently got a new computer at work with Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2010. I'm having issues in both Excel and Outlook when I try to drag and drop an item, instead of just dropping when I take my finger off of the mouse button, I'm having to click a second time on the mouse to get it to drop the item. I have googled this problem and tried multiple things to trouble shoot without success. It is driving me crazy!

I have downloaded new mouse software
Tried another mouse
Undocked and tried with touchpad
rebooted
Checked settings in Excel and drag and drop is enabled.

Really appreciate any insights.

Hello @Mbeeding, Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! I recognize that the click function on your HP Pavilion 15 Notebook is not working correctly. This type of issue can be caused by either hardware or most likely driver failures. Begin troubleshooting by performing a hard reset. Once the notebook is back on, follow this touchpad / clickpad troubleshooting document: HP Notebook PCs - Using the TouchPad or ClickPad (Windows 10) I look forward to your reply!

Hi hope you can help and my apologies in advance for lack of using the proper tech words for things.

About a week ago I started to have problems with my right click menus, drop down boxes and ability to close browser and browser popups.

The problem is intermittent and seems to happen once I have been online for a while rather than at start up.

When I right click, the menu either doesn’t come up at all, or is empty, ghosted out, with just a vague outline of the frame.

When I encounter a drop down box option, I click on it and no menu drops down.

And as said above, when this is happening, I have to close browser and pop up boxes via the task manager.

When this started I immediately did 2 full virus scans, spybot & adaware scan, plus I downloaded Malwarebytes Anti Malware and did a full scan with one find, details below:

Hey,

So, I just installed a watercooler on my build just because I figured I could get rid of heatsink whine and some other noise. Since I have installed it, I notice I get FPS drop while running CSGO, my temps aren't any better, infact they are slightly higher, and im getting a lot of performance drop. I read in one place that motherboards might throttle if the motherboard is a cheap one.... Can anyone recommend anything?

Build:
Motherboard: ASRock Z170 Pro4S LGA 1151
CPU: I7-6700k
GPU: Gigabyte G1 Gtx 1060 Gddr5 - 6Gd
RAM: HyperX Fury 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400
Watercooler:Corsair H110i v2
Previous cooler:ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev 2
If you need more info let me know.

2 fans attached to the radiator.

The GPU never spiked over 65.Which is what is has always done at most. CSGO is a cpu intensive game moreso. I saw temps up to 78 on the cpu.

the HD is a clone image of the original OS Vista HP SP2 toshiba L305-S5945. 4 gig Ram 64 bit

Its an off on problem. Currently off. ???
I was defragging and it froze when I tried to click on it. Then the cursor had no effect on the screen when I clicked. I restarted by using the start button. It did the same only worse. I did some startup scans and eventually had to use Ubuntu live disc to get on the machine where the cursor worked fine. I could not find a way to use the live disc to run scans on the HD.
I restarted several more time using the startup repair options short of full reload. It even froze trying to start in safe mode.
Finally it started in safe mode and I was able to do a disc cleaner which failed once then worked. I restarted normally and it was working. I used MWB and ADWCleaner. It worked ok fora while then froze up but this time when I started normally it worked again. I started a defrag again and left it on over night. It was frozen this morning and I shut down using the start button. It started and ran normally after.

A:Cursor moves no effect when I click

You should test your HDD.
Go to Start/Search and type CMD, right click the CMD results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Command Prompt type chkdsk /R and press enter. Now type a Y for Yes and restart the computer. Check Disk will go through 5 stages, and will take a long time so do it overnight.
You can also download the ISO image for Seatools in my signature, and burn it to CD. Boot off of the newly created CD and Run the Short and Long diagnostic tests on the HDD. If either fails the HDD needs to be replaced.

well i did the stupid thing of having water around the computer..and well needless to say..it spilled....now my mouse doesn't work...can anyone help me?
 

A:Water and a Mouse

Of course don't try to start the PC with the mouse connected until it is completely dried out.

Unplug the mouse from the PC. Untwist the underside and take the roller-ball out. You then have a choice of leaving it in a warm place to dry out naturally, or taking a hair-dryer to it and blowing warm (not hot) air through it for 15 - 20 mins until it is dry.

Put it all back together and it should be OK, especially if it was just water. Other drinks often foul the optics.

If that doesn't fix it, junk it. Hopefully it was a cheap enough model for it not to be an expensive mistake.

Back in April of 2007, Microsoft announced a security flaw with the animated cursor, that could allow an attacker to take over a system using animated cursors. They have since released a windows update that addressed the flaw so there shouldn't be any security concern there provided you have installed SP1. That said, NEC may have disabled the cursor animation to avoid the possibility of an attack and add security to the system, regardless of Microsoft's release of a fix for the issue.

The other likely candidate is that the software you are using that has the animated cursors may not be compatible with your version of Vista. You didn't state if it was 3rd party software or if you are running x32 or x64 Vista, but many 3rd party animated cursor programs are not compatible with Vista, and particularly Vista x64.

Outside of that, I would suspect a RAM fault, faulty video drivers or a system setting issue.

While in Firefox I can access only the webpage window or the Firefox task/address bar at a time and to switch from on to another I need to click on the taskbar or desktop and then back to Firefox.

i received a second hand toshiba portege m400 by mail and saw that it probably has some water condensation trapped between the outer screen and the touchscreen behind it. because the screen in the upper left corner looks whitish. and the sender of the laptop said it wasn't there when he sended it. i have a picture of the trapped moisture, for those who want to see it.

so, i opened the screen by unscrewing it. and saw that most of the moisture is trapped between the outer glas screen and another layer behind it, which, i guess, is the touchscreen part. which look unreachable. these 2? layers form the upperpart of the screen.

the lcdscreen with all the electronics below that layer, form the lower part of the screen or if you will, the cover. this part is now oke. it had also some water condensation on it and i could gently wipe the little bit of moisture from that lcdscreen without trouble. that helped a little bit in this problem.

but some moisture stays trapped between that glass layer and touchscreen layer part in the upperpart of the screen/cover.

in the hope of evaporating the moisture, i left the lit a little bit open for a day, i even separated the upperpart and lowerpart of the screen. i applied some heat of a infrared lamp, from a save distance. all that didn't help.

*so, how do I remove the water condensation?*

*is there a way to lift a layer up in the upperpart of the screen to reach the moisture?*

A:Portege M400 - How to remove the water condensation?

Hello olekike

Please don?t understand me wrong but I?m afraid you need professional help with this. As I can see your question is not answered for days now and I believe nobody here has much experience with this stuff.
Display replacement OK but how to remove water condensation on touch screen is maybe too heavy for us.

I strongly recommend you to contact nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help. talk with guys what can be done about it.

Windows XP freezes when I try to drag and drop files. Also, when I right click on folders, the computer will sometimes freeze up. Or, the right click menu will open up, but when I try to move or copy folders, it will freeze up. I have to open task manager with Ctrl/Alt/Del and end the process. I just installed Directory Opus 9.5 to get around this, but I would like to solve the problem. I have a Dell Dimension 3100 with XP SP3. Thanks for any input!

Thanks, vsm

in graphic programs, explorer, etc when I right click I get a drop down box showing

"rename"

well right above that is "delete" and I'm frequently getting the two mixed when clicking, tho I don't usually actually delete cause I catch that first.

Is there a way to seperate those and reorder the drop down list so they are farther apart. It gets to be a nuisance sometimes when I am rename picture files.

A:change order in right click drop down box...?

Not an answer to your question but a still a solution of sorts.

Press F2 to bring up the rename dialog. No confusion that way

I'm a newbie, and need help. I can't click on links any links. Even on this site if I try to click on a link to any other site I can't. I don't even get a window that gives me the opportunity to open the link. I also can't click on drop down boxes or print from anywhere other than my word, it's driving me crazy.

A:Can't Click On Links Or Drop Down Boxes

Try downloading Java from the link below. After it installs, go to Add/Remove and remove all earlier Java programs.http://www.java.com/en/download/index.jspIf that doesn't solve your problem, it may be your security options are set too high. That is assuming that you are using IE browser.It could also be a security program on your computer is blocking script. Norton and ZA antivirus have been known for that. That you would have to troubleshoot by shutting down one program at a time from loading at startup or finding the setting that is blocking script.

A deleted, unwanted program appears whenever I right click on the start button or right click on a document.

When I highlight the program name, a window appears to search for the program to open the file...

How can I remove remnants of the program (there must be something there)...I have rebooted, and it still appears.

Thanks for any help

It's a really annoying bug, and I have no idea what caused it.
Also when you go over one of the drop down things with you mouse, it becomes visible.

(sorry for dutch text, I haven't found a way to change it...)

Have any of you guys ever had this?
And do you know how to fix it?

A:Whenever I click somewhere for a drop down menu, it is black, how come?

Hi Bob,

Try this :

1. Start
2. Right Click Computer
3. Select Properties
4. Click the Advanced System Settings
5. Advanced Tab

Spilled about 1l of water on my entire laptop...
I wiped water from it, and turned it on. The only parts that don't work: Mouse, Keyboard.
What should I do?
P.S: In the BIOS the keyboard works(and other stuff before the OS actually loads)

A:Spilled water on entire laptop, mouse and keyboard dont work.

First and foremost ...... are you SURE everything is dry inside? I spilled about a half glass of water on mine last winter and it was a couple of hours before it was dry enough for me to even try it. In my case I was lucky as everything was fine. Have you tried a system restore to a point before this happened? (I know I know... but simple things first.) An sfc/scannow will check for corrupted/bad system files and possibly repair them, have you tried that? Heres a link to a tutorial on how to do that : SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

After about 1 minute the mouse scroll and keyboard stop working until I left click mouse. Tool bar on browser also greys out but comes back after left click. Video and sound also are choppy. Not sure if this is related. Flash keeps crashing. Any ideas whats wrong? Windows 7 pro. Asus desktop. This occurs on Firefox, Chrome and IE. This seemed to start after Microsoft update and Flash updates

A:Mouse scroll and keyboard stop working until left click of mouse

Hello mpmckee,

First run Antivirus, Malware, and Spyware scans. Remove anything the programs find.

Note: if you need some suggestions on which tools to use, let me know.

Afterwards, test functionally of mouse and keyboard.

If no change, run System Restore, choose a Restore point before the issue started.

Again test behavior of mouse and keyboard.

If the issue has been resolved, go ahead and reinstall windows Updates.

John
