Double Click Problem

Today, when I restarted my computer, it asked me which OS I wanted to use. However, there was 2 problems. 1) I never had to choose which OS I wanted to run before 2) There was only one OS. After I signed in, I couldn't double click. It's only double clicking, I can left click - open, to open files but I can't double click them. Even to maximize a window, I can't double click it. So I decided to do a virus scan with NOD32, and it said I had no threats. So I looked up anyway this could happen and according to this site : http://djlizard.net/2007/10/05/257/ my registry values were messed. But nothing other was wrong.

So I decided to switch to another mouse, and the same thing happened.
For everything I click on, I can click once, but if I try to click a 2nd or 3rd or 4th time nothing happens.
After all of this I just tried restarting my computer again. This time it took a lot more time, but I didn't have to choose which OS I wanted to use.

Thank you for your help

EDIT: This was fixed with system restore, I think it might have been because of either a new windows update or a new java update.
