Mouose has stopped highlighting/move cursor in Word, Outlook....

Not sure what has happened, but my mouse doesn't work properly when composing/replying to  an email to email in Outlook 2003, or when editing a Word document.  I can type fine, but then if I use the mouse to highlight something, or try to change cursor position by clicking somewhere, nothing happens.  I have to use the arrow key or the Tab key to change cursor position....Not exactly efficient.  Any ideas?  Thanks.

Copy the following to the clipboard (it's all one line even if wrapped in your browser - paste into notepad and remove line breaks if necessary, and copy again)
click START, type RUN <enter>

=copy below here=
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Cached" /v "{A4DF5659-0801-4A60-9607-1C48695EFDA9} {000214E6-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} 0x401" /t REG_DWORD /d 1
