I haven't used my PowerPoint in forever, but when I tried to modify an old presentation today I could not use the mouse to drag objects. Then I tried clicking on the file menu and found I couldn't unless I right-clicked somewhere on the screen first.

Any time I click on a frame, my ability to mouse-click is gone until I right-click again.

I even reinstalled Office 2003 and installed all the updates again...it didn't solve the problem.

Any clue what the heck is going on here?

Nevermind...I got it.

Some program I installed added another program that attached itself to the office programs.

I got rid of it and all is well now.
