I thought it was something i did in x-teq but i comlbed every setting....

My mouse double clicks for me. Sometimes it does not. It happens fast when it does... Such as, if i click the minimize button, it beats me to it and brings the window back up. In outlook, if i select the delete button it deletes two emails instead of one. Selecting text is a pain.

Its only a two week old install. USB mouse. MS driver... All i do know is i want to grip the cord of the mouse and smash it on my desk until the glowing red light dims.

This happened to me and my Logitech MX1000 when not having the latest drivers.. so make sure you're all up to date.

Sounds like hardware problems, try another mouse and see if the same thing happends.

Currently using a wireless intellimouse and using the intellimouse 5 software.

There's options to change what all the buttons do and it can be easily set so the left mouse button double clicks for you. Go into mouse properties and check that out :)

It is set to just a single click. One interesting thing is that I can not switch the buttons. The left button still performs as a left button and the right button still has the normal functions of the right button.

I had the same problem. After a week or so of searching I found a utility called Mousefix written by one Daniel Jackson. Quote from the site:

"This is a small utility program I wrote to correct a problem that is experienced by some users of the Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer Optical Mouse, whose devices have defective microswitches under the buttons causing a single-click to be seen by Windows as a double-click (seemingly not "debounced" properly).

For my mouse, the problem seems to be that the switch isn't "debounced" when you release the button — i.e. when you release it, it actually clicks again. Basically, the program intercepts "up" events for the left mouse button, and ignores any subsequent "up" events that follow within a very small time."

go check it out, it fixed my double-click problem and allowed me to continue using my defective mouse with NO apparent side effects.

happened for me, i got some packard bell optical, happened ages, it was annoying in CnC G/G ZH as it would select all troops of same kind rather than that unit. but it just stopped doing it recently. lol. weird, i just kept unplugging it and plugging it in, like every day. and it worked.

Had this happen to me just last week.

In my case it was the USB port I had my wireless mouse receiver plugged in to. This particular port was not getting enough juice. It was a connector on my keyboard.

When I plugged it into a USB port at the back of my machine it fixed the problem.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

I have been having this problem for months now (maybe longer, lost track). It used to not be such a problem, but it's gotten worse and now it's at the point where if I want to highlight text I have to drag the cursor 3 times before it will "stick" (strangely, it is almost always exactly 3 tries before it stops "clicking down" when I release the cursor drag).

I ran the .exe from that site and I can already tell that it has been fixed.

BTW, yes I am using a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer. This problem has been really annoying me because I really love my mouse besides this "phantom click" problem. My first optical mouse ever was a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 4.0 (probably got it 6-10 years ago at this point), and I recently (about a year ago) replaced it with a new Intellimouse from Newegg that looks and functions (or at least I thought so) the same as the original mouse.

Again, THANK YOU so much for finding that site for me!!!!!

the fact that you only experience this randomly sometimes gives it away as a hardware problem... 

mousefix is a software compensation for the problem, but if you try to drag something around does it sort of let go on its own?




by the way, this topic's title reminds me of
