InDesign CS5 problem with Windows 7 Ultimate

Installed CS5 design premium on a new dell precision with 12gb ram running windows 7 in 64 bit mode with a wacom tablet. In InDesign i can point to an icon on the control panel or any panel on the right, and i'll see the tooltip, but i cannot click any button. I have problems selecting tools with the mouse but the keyboard shortcuts work. For example, pages panel, double click a page, nothing happens. Click the new page icon, nothing happens. The menus and panel menus work though. I deleted the prefs file, no change; Stranger, i opened illustrator and all the panels and buttons work just fine. I've also tried disconnecting the wacom and using an external mouse, and the problem persists.

The solution was windows can't run aero. Turning off aero solves the problem
