As you can see, when I press G I can't move the object automatically anymore, also when I press R to rotate it, I can't rotate the object automatically anymore without clicking it with the mouse.

I hope you can help me, I don't have this issue on my other computer with Blender!

This can be solved by going to the tool tab after pressing the N key, make sure your active tool is the move tool by pressing the G key. Under the Active Tool setting there is drag, select Active Tool. This should move your selected objects wherever your cursor is
