Moouse won't Drag and Drop

I just reinstalled Win95 on a system that had a reg error and told me to reinstall.  Everything seem to be work OK except mouse.  I can click and double click on files and folder, right click to bring up a menu, but whenever I try to drag a file the icon doesn't move.  Also, if I select copy from a menu when I move to a destination directory the paste isn't enabled.  Is this a setting or something or am I going to end up reformatting and starting from the beginning.

Have you tryed looking at the mouse settings in the control panel?
Deinstall the mouse reboot and see if Win95 reinstall the mouse.

Drag and Drop is a function of OLE.  Re-install all the service packs and patches you had on Win95 before you reinstalled Windows.  Download and install the OLE patch from M$.
