IDEA ignores mouse clicks

I and others in my team are encountering a bug in IDEA 4.5 (Windows XP Professional): It ignores mouse clicks. When this occurs, even the Swing application I am developing gets the problem.

There is no obvious conditioning factor for when this occurs. The bug starts at random, but when the bug starts, it keeps going until I reboot; it does not help to close and reopen IDEA.

I tried uninstalling IDEA, but the uninstaller itself had the same problem and I could not uninstall. So I manually erased IDEA and cleaned my Registry. Then I tried to install IDEA 4.5.1v2, but I got the same problem . I rebooted and was able to install.

The bug does not occur with any other application, including Java apps, on my machine.

Can anyone help?
