Up until now the mouse cursor on IE would be the Text Selection by default - meaning I could left-click on the mouse and select text from the page. Now it changed to a hand (the "drag" tool), meaning that when I left-click the mouse I can no longer select text, instead draging the page up and down.

Does anyone know how to change this back?

Is this on IE7? I have not seen this on my IE7 on eo i7210. I like the idea as then I don't have to TIP on arrrow down/up.

Back to the topic, ummm haven't seen the option to enable/disable this.

Is there any update to IE7 lately that may trigger this feature? or could it be a mouse software to change the basic behaviour of the window?

Just brainstorming here, what does the right button do? I'm wondering if maybe the mouse setup has changed from left handed to right handed or vice versa.

have you tried removing (if any) add-ons to IE7 like the google and yahoo tool bars?
Or gone to manage add-ons in internet options, programs. and removed any you are unsure of?

or tried a reset of ie?

No add-ons installed, no toolbars with bloated stuff... Just did a reset and it's all good again. Still don't know why, but somethings just happen...

Cheers

I have never seen this before in IE7. Looked at all the options but couldn't find anything that might explain this behaviour. Just one of those random things huh.

IE7 on Vista64? Perhaps you need a WHQL cursor for it... Tongue out
