    Mouse Double Click Problem


    When I single click it's actually doing a double click. It does this most of the time but not every click. Anyone else have this or heard of this problem? Could my mouse be going bad?

    Thanks

    I picked up another mouse and it's not doing it so my mouse must be bad.

    Quite common problem with mice, there's a very small micro switch under the buttons that has a definitive life span. Some dirt collected under buttons could also interfere with operation and cleaning it may help.
