Windows 7: Mouse click problems

Mouse click problems

I want my mouse to "select" when I single click the left button and "execute" when I double click. My husband and I share the same PC and his mouse operates the way I want, mine does not - it executes on a single click. Help?

Mouse click(S)
Mouse double/triple/quadruple clicks on a single click for some reason. I first thought it was the mouse itself but my wacom mouse as well as my logitech mouse does the same thing so that leads me to believe there is a virus or some other form of software issue. I've downloaded a program that...
