Photoshop tools won't work

It seems that randomly photoshop will decide that i am using the Scroll tool when i'm using something else (say the Brush tool). Also, selecting most menu commands/trying to open files by selecting the file and clicking the open button with my mouse will not work, or will attempting to open the Image menu with my keyboard (it just moves me to the next menu when attempting to navgiate in it)

"Have you restarted the software or rebooted the computer?
Perhaps there's is something locking your mouse
I found something on the Adbobe site referring to such a problem with InDesign.
They claim Aero Glass could be the source of your problem.

ISSUE
When you try to access a tool or panel
item in Adobe InDesign CS3by clicking
on it, nothing happens.
REASON
You have Aero enabled on your Windows
Vista system.
SOLUTION
Disable Windows Aero
Aero is a new
hardware-based graphical user
interface in Windows Vista. It is
intended to offer more advanced
features than are available in the
standard interface, including new
transparencies and animations.

Choose Start > Control Panel.
Double click Personalization and select Window Color and Appearance.
Select Windows Color And Appearance.
Click Open Classic Appearance Properties For More Color Options.
Select a Color Scheme other than Windows Aero and click OK.
Re-create the problem behavior, and then do one of the following:

If the problem doesn't recur, then Aero is the cause.
If the problem recurs, then Aero isn't the cause. Re-enable Aero."
