    Irritating Mouse Behaviour

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> all.

    Recently, my mouse has become a very recalcitrant rodent. The pointer moves as directed but he drag and click behaviours have become a problem. I now have difficulty highlighting a text string and single-clicking a file or icon opens them rather than selecting them. It's as if the single click is behaving as a double click. At first I suspected that their were some nasties working in the background but the checks I have made reveal nothing. I have also downloaded the latest drivers with no joy. I have also used TweakUI to adjust some settings but again to no good effect.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Optical mouse, or an old coal-fired jobbie?
    Wireless or wired?
    Can you try another mouse on your pc, or another mouse on yours to try and pin down what it may be?

    Optical Mouse - plug-in. Just trapped a different mouse and will give it a go.
    Thanks Leif.

    The different mouse is most compliant. Thanks again.

    Sounds like a hardware issue then - probably not cost/time effective to sort out, I'm afraid <img src=/S/crazy.gif border=0 alt=crazy width=15 height=15>
