    Question Unwanted highlighting of cells!!

    I recently moved into a new office and I am using a brand new computer on our network. When trying to edit an existing file, I'm not able to select a single cell and type. After clicking on a cell, if I move the mouse at all (even without pressing the left button) it just continues highlighting cells no matter where I move the mouse. I am also not able to click on the tool bars at all. I have to actually Ctrl-Alt_del to get out of the program. I'm sure this is something simple, but I don't know that much about this program. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
