Win 7 ultimate x64 sp1

is it wireless? may need new batteries if it is. i had this problem last year & again recently & new batteries fixed it.

i replaced a logotech mouse mtwo years ago after it started exhibiting the same problem, new batteries didn't fix it. the switches inside were worn. new mouse fixed it.

You don't list your anti virus in your specs.
I recommend installing and updating Microsoft Security Essentials.
Then do a complete scan.

Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows

I have Eset Smart Security. Version 4 I think.

Windows defender is just there in background, thats just a fire wall is it not? I dont even think its running tbh.

oh and to the last lad that posted about maybe being a wireless mouse, This is a USB mouse. I grabbed another one that was lieing around and its not happening now. So maybe its just a hardware type thing, the mouse is plain broke. I may try open it an see if there is dirt or something clogging it. Its either that or the driver is some how screwed up :/

on that note, does anybody know a decent place to get a mouse? Im in Ireland, I was goin to go the place I bought the PC in few years ago or ebay but seen as we on subject. Komplett is the shop i use btw!

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...
