When you are in the mouse settings, you will see a sliding bar, use this to adjust the speed of your double clicks, and then test it on the jack in the box.

When happy with the speed, click on apply, then ok, and try your mouse again in a program to see if this has cured it. J.

it's on the fastest speed already

Control Panel > Mouse > Buttons...

Make sure left click has not been assigned another funnction.

Might even be worth installing an updated mouse driver from the MS Update website.

Or, if you have TweakUI installed, you can restore the factory settings from that and reset your preferences.

It shouldn't be on the fastest speed - it's very unlikely you can consistently double-click with it set on the fastest. Set it in the middle.

PS - and reboot, if you haven't already.

try a different rodent if you have or can borrow one unlikley but could be a breakage somewhere

a ha

ok then.rebooted and was still the same.it's only a few weeks old so it didn't need new drivers.i've altered the mouse speed to half way and it double clicks ok now.however the LED is flashing quickly which should indicate that it needs charging up but it doesn't.so one thing sorted and lets hope the flashing is nowt to worry about ( that's all i need).cheers for all your help

What brand/make is your mouse?
