Mouse has problem when holding Right or Left button

Hello, as it says in the title.. everything was working fine last night... ( like 4 hours ago), now I can't do anything with it ( well I can), I mean, if I try to hold down the left key on an application to move it on the dekstop it will open that app so many time, if I'll try to drag a slide up and down it will basically only keep on pressing on it and that's the same with the right button.. what should I do ?

I would say you have a bad contact and instead of staying on it goes on and off very fast, that is why it opens the file.
On the desktop, on a blank area, press one point and drag to make a window. If it can't make one window, it's time to change the mouse switch or even the mouse.

Windows 7 Profession 64-bit

I would start by rebooting the computer. If wireless, check your batteries. If wired, make sure the cable is securely connected.

If still problems, try a different mouse. This will isolate the problem to the mouse, or the computer.

Win 7 Pro x86

remove the mouse and try another USB socket, hard reboot and try

If all should be fine, might go for install usb device, if so let it might take a minute

If not working, try another mouse in first usb socket

Mice are cheap really, i would not give it much chance, replace I would opt for

If new mouse fails somethings up, post back with symptoms
