Windows 7: Two mice bad in a month

Two mice bad in a month

Last month I ditched a Logitech mouse because the right button was randomly rapid double-clicking when pressed, no doubt from the button itself going bad. I ordered a new in pack HP 3-button mouse, basic cheap one, as a replacement. Now about 1 month after using it the left button does the same thing, it started yesterday on occasion and now does it way too much so much so it was making basic PC use impossible. I've ordered a better quality HP 5-button mouse and have swapped out the mouse from my XP computer for the time being(I can live without that PC for a few days). This one is working, at the very least both mice seemed to be faulty because of hardware and not software since swapping them fixed the issue.

I'm just wondering, could the PC itself be causing the buttons to go bad? Maybe feedback from the USB port damaging the mouse somehow? I'd wager I just got a faulty replacement but you never know, if it's some odd problem, as unlikely as it could be, causing this I'd like to know.

Yes, it's quite possible the USB voltages provided by/controlled by the motherboard and/or power supply are the problem. Do you have the same issue with different USB ports on the back or the ports on the front of the case?

Not really but the only other USB device in the rear is the keyboard, and the ports on the front I only ever use for removable storage devices so they're never in permanent use. I placed this new mouse into a separate port.

Are There Any Mice That Don't Click?
I have an intolerance to clicking noises, especially from mice and laptop touchpads. It aggravates my tourettes and causes me a great deal of stress every time i hear a click, so are there any mice that are completely silent? Thanks.

Cordless mice don't like me.
I seem to go through cordless mice way too fast. They might last 8 months if I'm lucky. I always end up with a mouse that gets very tempermental about right and left buttons. I loose the sweet spot and end up with my finger in a different place to get it to work and then it will change back. I have...

I'm looking at getting a Razer DeathAdder mouse. Price isn't bad for the kind of mouse it is. Mainly, I want a good mouse to replace the mouse I got with my system.
