I have a T-60 I just got from a friend with Vista Ultimate installed. The problem I have it that the left button on the integrated mousepad brings up a drop-down menu showing view, sort by, etc instead of generating a left-click wheb I depress it. I have update to the most recent bios and that does not fix. Any ideas?

This does not solve the problem. The problem is ONLY with the integrated mousepad. The buttons work fine with a USB mouse.

System restore does not help.

also, does the right button  delect or open files (like the left one should?)
if both do the same action, i suspect a physical interference between both

They both do the same thing on the touchpad, but not on the the track point.
