    mouse problems

    Whenever I double click to open a file it opens another little menu & I have to click open. Right clicking does not work & drop & drag things does not work. I dont know what is causing this problem. Any help?

    You might try re-installing your mouse drive. It sounds like your registry might be corrupted or you have a hosed-up .dll. Re-installing the driver should take care of those problems.

    I reinstalled the driver & now I can use the left side of the mouse but the right click no matter which setting I use just seems to be screwed up. Do you think I just need a new mouse. This one is only about 6 weeks old.

    Re: mouse problems

    I've had similar problems with a Genius NetScroll+ Mouse (non-cordless? version) in Win95b. Anywhere that I left-clicked on the desktop brought up the right-click menu. This would then go away after a reboot.

    Downloading more recent drivers worked for me, although I had to use MS IntelliPoint instead of Genius' own drivers. You might also like to check in Control Panel just to make sure your mouse isn't configured for left-handed use if you're right handed (and vice versa).
