So from one moment to the other, in Windows 7, i wasn't able to click certain elements of the UI. I could click icons in the taskbar but not on the desktop (just no reaction), then I could click icons on the desktop, but not on an active window (close window for example).
'Stupid windows' I thought, booted into Linux Mint, pretty much the same problem. I can use the browser, but when there another window (for example one to select a file to upload), that window doesn't react to click.
Right now I'm in a Firefox window on Linux Mint, I can click the tabs and menu items (File, edit ...) but can't close the window with the X icon.
It's not my mouse, both right- and leftclick work flawlessly. It's also not some stuck key on the keyboard, I disconnected it, to no avail.
I also tried around with Tab and I could use those windows as always.
What could this be?
EDIT: I begin to make some sense out of this: the mouse clicks sometimes seem to react to the window below the active window. For example, I have the start menu open and get the 'link' hand that you get when you hover over a link in your browser, because below the start menu there's a link in my browser. The PC doesn't seem to properly recognize which window is the active one, at least sometimes.
EDIT: I before stated that moving the 'focus' around with the tab key works good, but after further trying it doesnt.
Still, it is beyond my understanding how this could effect two entirely seperated operating systems.
