    I've got a Macbook pro that I bought in 2009 and I'm trying to figure out why it occasionally keeps getting stuck on right click when I use my trackpad. It won't let me left click at all. And if I try to scroll while this is happening, the page just zooms in and out instead of a regular scroll. Even when I try to go to the desktop, I can't do anything but move it around like its a picture or zoom in and out. The only thing that helps is to do a restart. Why is it doing this?

    Sounds like it's getting stuck in right click.

    the zoom feature is what happens when the ctrl key is pressed and you scroll in or out...

    so it sounds like your ctrl key on your keyboard is stuck!

    Hold the Control key and scroll the other way.
