    Trigger Happy.

    Whenever I,click the back button on my browser it clicks two times.
    Same thing happens when I`m in a folder and click "previous"it click me back two times.
    Settings are correct:"Double click an item".
    But when I,click once,it clicks twice.
    Does anyone have an idea what the problem might be?

    Re: Trigger Happy.

    Has this just started happening?
    Does it survive a re-boot?

    Yes,it started,a few days ago.
    And yes it`s still there after rebooting.
    Add.If I,have a few browsers open and I,want to close one at the X,it closes two browsers.

    Re: Trigger Happy.

    Do you believe it is only happening within IE?
    What happens in other applications?
    Have you installed/upgraded any software recently?
    Have you tried re-installing your mouse driver?

    Re: Trigger Happy.

    It definatly happens with all applications.
    For instance when I`m trying to burn a cd with Nero,when I,drag and drop,my mediaplayer opens because it thinks I,doubleclicked the file.
    Clicking the back button when I,m in a folder of a folder,clicks me right back to my documents etc.
    I,don`t know what you call recently,but about 2 weeks ago I,changed all my software.
    Reinstalling my mouse-driver would be an option to try and see if it makes any differance.
    Think I`ll try that first and let you know what happend.
    If not maybe you have some other solutions I can try.

    Thanks so far.

    Try removing your rodent from the Device Manager and rebooting....let Windows find it again and see if that does anything. Since it happens across all applications we can rule out an errant program as the cause.

    Re: Trigger Happy.

    Here`s some more info,it`s a Compaq Logitech Wireless mouse(No it`s not the batteries,I,tried that already)
    And the receiver is connected to a PS2 port.

    Re: Trigger Happy.

    After you remove the mouse, you can use the TAB key to select the appropriate "OK" or "Apply" buttons. The space bar can be used for a left mouse click when you have the correct button selected. And finally, pressing ALT+F4 enough will shut down your running applications, if any, and Windows too, once all applications are closed.

    Since it's a wireless mouse, have you tried changing the channel on the receiver and/or mouse? Most come with an additional channel for this reason. It's also possible that you have some radio interference nearby that's causing the problem. Could be anything with a motor that generates square waves, or another remote control device of some kind. What has changed recently in your environment?

    Re: Trigger Happy.

    I`m gonna try it the way you explained it(print the page first)
    Can`t I,use the up and down/left and right keys?
    Guess I,ll find that out for myself.
    Cannot think of anything specific that has changed in my environment.
    So,I`m gonna try that and hope it`s the solution for this irritating problem.

    Thanks so far.

    Re: Trigger Happy.

    Removed the mouse from my machine and rebooted.
    Window detected the mouse again and re-installed the software for it.
    I`ve been checking all aplications today and the problem is`nt that frequent anymore.
    But it is`nt gone either.
    Especially when using Nero.(When selecting a bunch of files while holding down the shift key)
    The receiver of my wireless doesn`t have a switch to select a different frequency.
    So the problem isn`t really gone but as I,said it doesn`t happen that often anymore.
    Maybe someone has yet another idea?
    In the main time thank you both for the quick responces and explanations.

    Greetz.

    Check your cookies folder... it sounds like you've got a case of DoubleClick! <img src=/S/rofl.gif border=0 alt=rofl width=15 height=15>

    Couldn't resist that one, though I'll probably regret it later on.

    An improvement, but no real fix. Hmmmm. If you have time, it may be worthwhile to perform an in-place install of WIndows all over again. Normally, I don't expect much out of it, but part of the setup process will validate and correct any mismatched/corrupt system files. I would also recommend disabling any applications/programs that run at startup, and rebooting with a "clean" slate. If the problem goes away, then re-enable the programs one at a time until it does, and then you'll have your cuplrit.

    Have you tweaked any mouse settings in the Control Panel, and are you using the vendor's software to enable any additional features? I've had weird problems with Logitech's Mouseware before, and the odd weird thing with IntelliPoint too.
