The Move tool, path selection tool, and direct selection tool no longer select individual pngs, shapes, or words to be moved and resized. 

I have to select each part individually in the layers drop down to select anything. I have reinstalled completely and checked several other versions to make sure it was not the new update. I am at a loss becuase I cannot even deselect an object by clicking off the artboard anymore. 

Any tips?

You're very welcome. And it's okay--it's an easy option to accidentally turn off. 🙂

If you want to overwrite Auto-Select option hold down Ctrl.

 

With Auto-Select turned on, Ctrl will temporary turn it off and vice versa. 

 

Do not forget there is and Group option which acidentally can be turned on.
