Windows 7: Mouse stuck on single click rename

22 Apr 2016   #1

Mouse stuck on single click rename

Out of the blue for some reason I am having a strange issue, every time I click fold/files/icon it automatically highlights the text to rename.
I have also noticed that this is not an desktop issue, when playing a game the menus will start flickering as if I am constantly clicking on them at high super high speed.
I have removed drivers, reinstalled drivers, checked the settings. I also booted into linux to make sure it was not a hardware issue, its fine.

BTW I just realised that this issue does not happen on the windows/program files of system folders.

The last thing I was doing before noticing the issue was using steam and watching youtube video, I noticed that there was some flicking on the youtube video.

What else is there?

Mouse Double-clicking on Single-click
I have a wired 5-button Microsoft optical Intellimouse, about 5 yrs old. Lately it's double-clicking when I single-click, which obviously is quite annoying. It's not the software mouse clicking speed, that doesn't solve it. I switched to an old mouse temporarily and the problem didn't occur, so...
