XMBC Version: 2.19 Portable or Installed
Windows Version: Windows 10 build 1909
Mouse Information (brand/model): Logitech M525
Relevant Computer Information (CPU, RAM etc): Core i7 3770, 32 gigs of ram
Did the problem occur after an upgrade of XMBC? (If so, from what version?): No
Did the problem occur after a Windows update/upgrade? (If so, from what version?): No
How long have you used XMBC?: Over a year
What language and keyboard layout do you use in Windows?: English, standard

I have the mouse buttons left and right swapped. No other modifications made. I logged into my computer after being away and I was unable to click on anything. At first I thought the system was unresponsive but after a minute it reacted to the clicks and then resumed not responding. Keyboard worked fine but since I couldn't remember the process name I uninstalled it. Once removed the mouse worked fine.

I decided to download the portable version and run it, instead of reinstalling. Once launched the mouse worked for a moment or 2 and then stopped working again. Killing the process and everything is back to normal.

Idle CPU usage is currently around 13% for browsers and a few other system processes. Nothing unusual.

The mouse wheel still worked fine. Mouse cursor would still move around the screen but neither left or right clicking had any effect.

Had your PC been asleep or in hibernate?
Someone else has reported XMBC crashing / not responding when waking from sleep.
Maybe this is the same issue. If it is, I have a fix - but haven't had any confirmation yet that it works in all cases (hence holding off on publishing it).

Another question....

How did you swap your left/right buttons - did you simply set the left button to "Right click" and the right to "Left click" or do you use "Switch primary and secondary buttons" in the options tab - or the Windows option to switch buttons?
