Selection tool stopped working

I was using InDesign CS6 for a few hours today and all of a sudden my selector (arrow) tool would no longer work. I can still move objects using the arrow keys, but can't move them using that tool. All my other tools, from what I can see, still work.


The objects are not locked, nor are they on a separate layer.


I have already tried to reset InDesign preferences both manually (through the Library) and upon program launch. I have also tried replacing those preferences files with those of a co-worker (ones we know work) but all this does is cause a fatal error and a crash the next time I open the program.


Any help would be appreciated.
