Hi.
If I try to click on something and drag it to send on emails for example, if its a video it starts playing, almost like I double clicked it, I didn't.
If you hold left click and try to highlight something it doesnt do it all you have to keep trying. It is a logitec laser mouse, I even tried thier software but it was the same, so deleted it.

I have been having a lot of problems with my mouse this morning.
Just did a reboot and it seems to be workink Ok at the moment.
But it had been very jerky this morning and had trouble dragging things with it.
Since the reboot it is behaving itself it is a Logitec PS2 mouse.
Using virginmedia just in case it was a problem with that.

Go to Control panel, check the mouse settings, you may have accidently activated the single click system, or it could be the mouse button is sticking down, which means a new mouse.

Tried rebbot, deleted new drivers in case it was a conflict. Checked the batteries with a meter. what next ?

I could not see single click, but I think on mine it is called click lock? It is still playing up.
