    Need to re-clicking buttons to get them to work and other oddities


    I have a problem that keeps getting worse. For example, in Chrome, Firefox, Wordpad, Foobar, and Office, when I click on a button it flickers without opening and I have to re-click it a number of times to get what I want to open, and when I click on a link from my bookmarks in my two browsers, another link often opens. Also, when I want to check a box in Outlook, I have to keep re-clicking. Moreover, when I try to select a text I have to select it a number of times before I get it to highlight. Finally, when I want to drag an icon on my desktop, I click once and the icon opens instead of allowing me to drag it with one click and holding the button down. This has been going on for months. This does not happen in other programs, like Adobe Acrobat.

    I searched for viruses and malware using Malwarebytes, adwcleaner, Windows Defender, and Kaspersky but nothing shows up. I went so far as to reformat my C: drive and re-install Windows 10 from scratch, with the Internet disconnected, and the problems persisted just using a portable version of Foobar!!! Changing my mouse also does not help.

    If I remember correctly, the problems started to happen just after the April update and I already deleted the folder needed to uninstall it.

    Thanks for any help!

    :)

    Click next/OK as required to complete installation. Repeat the steps for all Intel USB devices. Finally click on each USB root device and press DEL to delete it, reply YES when asked. After deleting all USB root devices restart the computer.

    I hope this is detailed enough...

    Start Button displaying but not working


    The start button was working until there was a forced reboot (power failure). Then left click (normal click) over the start button does absolutely nothing. Right click brings up a menu but "programs" and also "settings" are missing and not included on this list. Search or Task View buttons do not work either with "normal" click. Does anyone have any suggestion or fixes?
    Thank you in advance *Huh

    download button on Netflix app

    Hi Petre,

    This might be caused by a software conflict. As an initial troubleshooting step, we suggest resetting the app and see if it helps. To do that, follow the steps below:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Select System.
    • On the left-panel, click Apps & features.
    • Look for the app on the list then click it.
    • Click the Advanced options link.
    • Click the Reset button.
    • If resetting did not work or not available, click the Repair
      button instead.
    • Restart your PC.

    If the issue still persists, try uninstalling and reinstalling the app and see if it helps.

    Should you need further assistance, feel free to post back.
