Default Right Mouse Button Not Working


This is my first time here and I really need help. Yesterday my mouse (Razer Diamondback) got messed up. All of a sudden my right mouse button became inactive and my left mouse button worked as both a right mouse button and a left mouse button. I thought it was just a glitch that would go away when I restarted my computer but it stayed. On my desktop, whenever I left click on an icon or the desktop it will pop up a menu like if I would have right clicked it. But it is different when I get on Firefox. When I get on Firefox the LMB works as a normal LMB but I just can't right click anything. I was trying to find a way to fix it all yesterday. I found one of the causes is that I had too many things running at once and something happened. I reinstalled my drivers and I tried another mouse that was not USB. Neither worked. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Send a message via AIM to jcortes

could be adware run some scans like spybot and ad-ware. also go into mouse settings and be sure that the mouse settings are just not messed up.

Yeah, I ran spybot, regeditXP, and ad-aware. Still nothing. I went to the Windows mouse settings and everyting was fine, and I checked the Razer mouse settings which were fine. I need to find out some way to bind menu back to the RMB and click to the LMB. For some reason they just got screwed up.
