I have just been using my computer and all of a sudden i noticed that i can't drag and drop anymore. I am currently running Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1. User Account Control is turned off and i have tried using another mouse and that's got the same problem.

I am only dragging and dropping from one folder to another on windows.

Hope someone can help.

Thanks, Tom

ITs a common problem ive seen with windows 7, normally it is a program not letting go of the dll or whatever windows uses to drag and drop. i have not found a way to "fix it" inside windows mostly all u can do is restart windows or restart explorer. As most people dont know how to restart explorer your best bet is to restart pc. I have noticed this when im draging somehing to say imgburn and imgburn freezes, it holds the mouse. Closing imgburn does not fix it only restart of pc or explorer. Good news is once you restart drag and drop should be right back to you. goodluck
