Just Installed Windows 10 and I can't move clips or audio files in ableton?

Since I installed windows 10 I've lost the ability to drag and drop anything in Ableton. I can't move (or drag and drop) clips, audio files, effects, plugins, pretty much everything that can be moved, that includes dragging and dropping in files from the browser. And this issue is in both session and arrangement view. Is anyone else running into this problem?

    Maybe something went wrong during the migration process from your previous version of Windows to Windows 10. 

    Please try uninstalling Live, as pointed out here: 


    And download and reinstall the latest version from your account. 

    Please let us know if this can fix it.

    I have this same issue...upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and I can't drop anything into Ableton Live now.  Can someone confirm if re-installing fixes this problem?  I really really don't want to go through with an uninstall if it doesn't fix the issue.  Thanks!
