    Ok, so I clicked the wrong thing!

    I've been using a wired microsoft mouse for CAD in windows running in vmware, it works lots smoother than the magic mouse (which is super but not for vmware CAD)

    The other day I made the cursor a little bigger and went to make it the standard size again today, I clicked the left/right click button and the mouse clicking stopped working all together.

    Now, I can use the mouse buttons reversed but I rather not. Here's the weird thing. Every time I open the system preferences the mouse click stops working. If I use my magic mouse the options within the mouse settings are only for the magic mouse and not my plugged in one.

    I'm going a little mad now, halp!

    Ok, the backspace problem has sorted it's self out. Really not sure what I did there. And as I try it now, the numpad is working again.

    The mouse problem still exists, when I go into system preferences it just locks up and I have to force quit system prefs with the keyboard and then the mouse works.

    what prefs files can I delete that might fix whatever I've done?

    Cheers

    I have reversed the buttons in the Microsoft Intellipoint software. Problem temporarily fixed.
