Windows 7: Why do I have to double click hyperlinks in IE9?

Win 7 64-bit
Why do I have to double click hyperlinks in IE9?

While browsing just about anything it seems that I have to double click a lot of links, buttons, etc for the link to work. If I just click it once it seems to almost just highlight the link but then I have to go back and click it again for it to "go".

This doesn't happen on everything I click on, but it does happen quite often.

Any help appreciated.

Go to Windows Explorer, Tools, Folder Options, General, Click items as follows, select: "Single-click to open an item."

You may also have some additional preferences/options provided by your mouse or touchpad.
