Blender Help

I wasn't sure where to put this, but I'm desperate to get this to work properly and have had no luck with plurk or with the official blender forum so far.

Okay here's the issue:

I'm on Windows 7. I run the current version of Blender.

While working on an object using the screw modifier, I was suddenly unable to rotate the object with the mouse (I use a three button mouse with a scroll wheel). I also cannot move anything in the UV map window using the mouse. The mouse works just fine in other apps.

I unchecked the manipulate center points button here

That didn't work.

I hit N and brought up this panel to make sure the padlock buttons were all unchecked. They are.

I then tried to open a new file. I can't even rotate the default cube.

After that, I thought closing and reopening blender might help. It didn't.

Then I did a clean install, including reuploading the latest version of blender. That also hasn't worked.

Is there any way I can get the use of my mouse buttons in blender again?


EDIT: I have tried LOAD FACTORY SETTINGS on blender. I have also done an extra clean uninstall and reinstall. Still no dice. I cannot figure out why my mouse refuses to work in blender the way that it should. I can grab things with the mouse. I just cannot rotate things. This makes the application totally useless for creating.

File -> User preferences -> scroll to very bottom -> there should be four boxes -> change Free to Orbit.

if thats not it and you have a logitech mouse.. you might need to get SetPoint - Logitech Support and set the function of your middle button/scroll wotsit

That didn't work. And none of the buttons on the mouse will rotate the object.

Thing is the rotation was working fine, then it wasn't right after I used the Screw modifier. I guess it was for more than making coils. it has screwed me royally.

I would try another mouse if you have a spare one laying around.

Unfortunately I don't have another mouse. Plus, the mouse works for all other applications. It just doesn't work as expected in blender.
