Ubuntu Mouse Problem?

By Tyharo ·
I recently install Ubuntu along side Windows 7. Everything boots find and works well except my mouse. For some reason when I open an application or any window my mouse will not work on anything out side the window and some stuff inside. For example, when I open the software center my mouse works just fine inside the window but if I try to open something else I will not be able to click it and when i want to close the window I cannot click I have to use alt+F4.
Any Idea how I can fix this?
Im suing a laptop and I am using Ubuntu 11.04.

R.A.T. 7

I'm suing a R.A.T. 7 (wired) and it has its own drivers but Ubuntu automatically gets drivers though. Not only does my mouse do that but my touch pad too.
