    the mouse is jumpy and do not select

    hi, thank you for your time.

    i have a optical mouse (little car) and it do not select a sentence or a line on the brouser
    select next word and deselect the previous, jump lines - drive me crazy.
    i changed zillion mouse pads - no avail
    also when i click and hold to drag, it "double click"

    if someone have any clue i'd very much appreciate.

    thanks again for your time and help

    It should be totally better. Most optical mice don't even need a mouse pad these days.

    Is this with the Samsung notebook and W8.1 listed in your System Spec?

    Did you check the mouse properties from Control Panel to make sure you don't have ClickLock or some other option enabled?

    Have you scanned for malware?

    Does it jump around when using the notebook's touch pad too?

    And what is "little car"?
