Windows 7: Mouse movement sending Ctrl-C

Win 7 Ultimate 64bit
Mouse movement sending Ctrl-C

I have noticed that when I move the mouse with left button pressed over a window, that window receives Ctrl-C key event. This is very annoying especially when it breaks the hours long build of a project in virtual linux guest

Any ideas how I can disable this?

Hi ardusan

You can switch buttons - Control Panel > Mouse > Buttons, but unless you have specific software (eg) Razer interface, I would suggest just don't move the mouse with left button pressed over a window.

PS - good idea to fill in your system spec
