Annoying mouse problem

I'm using an A4 tech model RFSOP-48 cordless mouse. The problem is that every time i press the button for a single click, it reads as a double click.

So, if im trying to click on "Play" in WMP for example, it will play then pause. Or if im trying to select an internet window, it will resize the window (instead of just selecting it).

Please help because this is driving me insane!

Are you using the latest driver for your mouse? Check here and compare the version number with what you have. It may be that your driver is corrupted. Either way make sure you have a version of the latest driver and know where it is in your system.

It may be a simple setting - Go Start then program files then look for something like A4tech in that list. This shuold get you to the A4tech software for your mouse settings. You might be able to change it from there.

If that fails you can try going into device manager and selecting the mice and other pointing devices then double click (this shouldn't be a problem right? :whistling: ) select properties and then uninstall. Reinstall the driver if it doesn't do it automatically on the next boot.

You might want to have a PS2 mouse handy in case your A4tech one doesn't function until you reinstall (but basic mouse function should be conferred through the BIOS.

If none of those work - it could also be malware related, which could mean a visit to the malware forum. You should perhaps go through the cleaning steps in preparation for this anyway to make sure.
Please follow all the directions found here. After you get to step 5, if your problem is not resolved, post a HijackThis log in the Malware forum. If your problem persists after getting a clean bill of health from a malware expert, return here and we'll continue troubleshooting.

Keep in mind, the malware forum is very busy and can take up to 5 days to receive a reply. There is a special forum called The Waiting Room if you've been waiting for 3 or more days. You can put a link to your topic & a short description of your problem and someone will get with you soon.

If anything needs further clarification don't hesitate to ask
