Detect Mouse stops moving

Detect Mouse stops moving

Detect Mouse stops moving

I want to make a script that left clicks once i stop moving the mouse...
I need this script to constantly monitor the mouse for movement and once it stops for 1 sec, send a left click.

1. i am in a restrictive corporate environment and cannot install any software.
2. I am not able to run PowerShell scripts (i tried changing the policy and was denied)
2. i can run VBS scripts

it doesnt need to be sophisticated, just something that i can capture when the mouse has stopped moving and than sends a left click once the mouse movement is stopped for more than 1 second, i need this to constantly run in a loop, so monitoring for mouse movement, then trigger left click on mouse stopped for > 1000 ms

possible with VBS?

thanks for any help
