Windows 10: Windows 10 - Mouse/Touchpad move cursor, but can't click
Windows 10 - Mouse/Touchpad move cursor, but can't click
My computer will randomly "freeze", meaning that I can move my mouse around, but clicking on things like my browser or the start bar doesn't do anything. I looked around online and the only "solution" I found was to press ctrl+alt+delete, then press cancel.
I have tried updating my drivers, but Windows tells me that they are all up-to-date. I also tried doing a system restore, but unfortunately, I don't have any restore points set up. Its not my mouse that's broken because I've tried several, including the touchpad on the laptop itself, and they still don't work. So far, I haven't been able to find a pattern for what the cause is, but it occurs about two times a minute.
Any ideas on what the problem might be and how I should fix it?
Edit: After messing around a bit, I discovered that it is only the left-click button that isn't working. The computer is still registering my mouse because I can see hover effects, and right-clicking still works.

Can u show me a picture of your mouse when clicking on things? will it stay as an arrow? or turns into a hand? I think this also happend to me
Occasionally my PC will stop for a few seconds.
NOTHING (other than mouse pointer) will respond for about 10 seconds, BUT when it does start responding again, whatever I tried to do during the hang, whether I had pressed START or ctrl/alt/dlt or...
I want to preface by saying this is now the second time (and second account - will get to that later) that this has happened.
This morning, I go to wake up my computer from sleep (Windows 10, now with Anniversary update) and it...
I have had this issue for only a couple of days now. I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling the drivers for the mouse, sound card, and headset, which still hasn't helped. I've seen other sites talking about an "Intel Technologies Access Services"...
My laptop perfectly works fine, I have the touch pad able to move around the screen. The only issue here is that I am unable to click. I have a usb mouse and it is perfectly working and able to click. Its just the touchpad that has issues.
I hope someone out there is able to help me.
I upgraded to Windows 10 two days ago, and I really like the new OS.
However I have problem with my touchpad and therefore mouse clicking.
