    Hi everybody,

    I'm using Mac OS X 10.4.11 on an Intel Macbook and am having the following problem: the left click seems to be "locked", i.e. wherever I move the cursor it is as if I had done a left click and was holding the button down. The result is that selection windows appear all the time. This happens both when I use the trackpad and when I use an external mouse, so it seems to be a problem in the system. I have tried the following things without success:

    - restart the computer
    - reset the mouse/trackpad via system preferences
    - reset the trackpad by putting my palm on it

    I'd be happy if someone could help me on this issue.

    Considering it's the left mouse click that the OP is having issues with... you could have given more information as I'm guessing this is the solution to the OP's problem.

    Look in the Mouse/Trackpad pref pane, or maybe under Universal Access.
