Mouse Does Not Work Word 2007

Mouse Does Not Work In Word 2007
I have Windows Vista Enterprise 64 bit on my Dell Latitude laptop. I run Microsoft Office 2007 and recently in Word 2007 my mouse stopped working. I could use the keyboard but could not select text with the mouse. I also could only use the mouse for certain buttons but not all buttons. The fix when your mouse does not work in Word 2007 is to rename the registry key below then reopen Word 2007. The steps to perform this is to:

Close Word 2007
Click Start
Click Run or type regedit and hit ok.
In regedit browse to the key below. Right click and rename the key.

Then reopen Word 2007 and your mouse should now work.
