Hi Krit,
	It really should work.  When you hover the mouse over an atom, does a little text balloon pop up saying what the atom is?  If you press the Control key while dragging the mouse with the left button held down, do you get a green rectangle drawn (with any atoms/bonds inside the rectangle selected)?  Finally, if you go to the Mouse preferences (Favorites->Preferences and change "Category" in the resulting dialog to "Mouse") and change picking (icon that sort of looks like a plus sign) to the "1" button (instead of "Ctrl+1") can you select atoms by just clicking the left button (without holding Control down)?
