Left mouse button no longer will open a Desktop shortcut

OS is XP on a Dell Dimension 4300
For years everything worked fine. Then, without any obvious notice, the left mouse button will no longer open a Desktop icon. I have to use Open under the right mouse button. To get to the Control Panel, I have to do Run: Control Panel. Interestingly, once I'm in the control panel, the left mouse button will work to launch selections there.
I'm using a Logitec RX-1500 mouse, which has a USB terminal but I run it thru an adaptor for the round plug-in. My Kensington mouse now has the same effect I describe above.
I have read of this problem before but never heard of the solution. Has anyone had this?
