I did some housekeeping on the thread and took down my Aero posts (except for the one re: save theme). I was a bit over zealous and deleted my early post re: mouse. My doing this left one of Arc's post hanging in mid-air, sorry Arc.

A simple question: have you changed the mouse batteries recently?

Or use touchpad if PC is a laptop.

Or check if you are infected.

My Logitech trackball began to double-click on its own, too, and I found this post from (I think) a company rep. I'm sorry I no longer have the actual source, as I kept the one post only as a text file. It did work for me and for many with the same issue.

"This can be caused by static energy trapped inside the capacitors in the mouse. To drain this static energy, please plug the Unifying receiver into a different USB port and follow this procedure:

1. Shut off the mouse and remove the batteries.
2. Press all the buttons repeatedly for 30 seconds. This will drain all the static energy that may be trapped in the mouse.
3. Put the batteries back in the mouse and turn it on.
4. Wait a few seconds for it to re-connect and test the buttons.

If this does not fix your issue, please contact the customer support team in your region for more assistance, including a possible warranty replacement."

Hope this helps.

win7 x64 ultimate

right on logicearth !
it was a hardware problem : I bought a new mouse and all is fine again !
I guess I had never kept a mouse so long, so I had no idea such could happen.

THANKS LOGICEARTH and thanks to you all for your input, gini, I'll try and see if my mouse can be used again with your instructions

the OP is happy !!!

I have the same problem, but a new mouse didn't fix it. I made a new post about the problem: Windows has stopped - Windows 7 Help Forums

Window maximizes by dragging to top.
It seems by design in Windows 7, a window will maximize if dragged to the top of the display. It seems to work, but I would like to say I don't really want it to do that. I move windows to the top of my display all the time just to use all the available space so I do not like it maximining if I go...
