Problems with Right Click and the Arrange page

I have been having problems with recording as the Click often does not work using the querty keyboard to activate record. I have to start play then stop and the click will work.
I also have problems with the right click on the mouse I can sometimes get it back if I right click on the mixer window. While it is happening I cannot access any of the mouse functions like altering the length of the ruler or the length of a part.
I am wondering if this is a windows 7 thing???
