I have this problem for a pretty while and it's so annoying.
When I press once with my middle mouse button it clicks randomly, sometimes it's 2,3 and sometimes 4.
Also sometimes it happens that clicking the middle mouse button results in " right " or " left " mouse click though this isnt that often.
This usually happens when I start up my PC, I mean when the PC was turned off for some time and then I turn it on, but on the other side this happens randomly, doesnt matter if the PC has been working on for minutes/ hours.
This problem occurs in 2 browsers, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.
I have the latest version installed for these 2 browsers, I also once reinstalled Google Chrome but it didnt help at all.
I also use a software called " Auto Hotkey " which is meant to fix this problem by checking the time between each click so it doesnt allow a double click instead of 1 click but using it doesnt help neither because this problem occurs randomly.
Other than that, my mouse isnt any special, it's worth aproximately $7-8 and it's a little bit old, Im using it for like 3-4 years or so.
My question is, what causes these double clicks? Is it that the mouse is getting old/ getting dust inside or something?
Also, is there anything I can do except buying a new mouse ?
Thanks in advanced
