My mouse has been acting funny for a few days. It is treating single clicks like a double click so that I post twice, or deal two rows of cards in Spider. It's also really sticky when I try to copy paste or insert the mouse between letters to edit. It wants to highlight everything around it, so that when I insert the missing letter, all my words disappear. Sorry not very good at explaining the problem here, but suddenly editing or using the mouse is difficult. Changed the mouse and it's still the same. Running Windows 7 Home edition on a 4 month old laptop with an i3 processor and plenty memory. If anyone asked me this question, I'd suggest looking at recently installed programs for a conflict, but I haven't installed anything recently. Any ideas?
Thanks for that Skyfire. I already suspect the problem is software related because my other mouse acted the same while both are fine in my older laptop. I'm going offline now and will check the mouse in safe mode and go through all those steps advised later.
