Windows 7: Dell laptop mouse autoclicks!

Dell laptop mouse autoclicks!

Using the built-in mouse on my Dell, if I let it hover over a clickable icon, it will simply click the icon after one or two seconds. I don't see any setting in the mouse section of the control panel that would change that. Other places to look?
