    Hyperactive mouse or hypersensitive system?
    « on: March 14, 2008, 01:25:45 PM »
    My machine reacts to everything that I mouse over, such as the shut down command on the start menu. Also, If I click once to open a program, such as Internet Explorer, it will open a bazillion windows and I'll be unable to close them or do anything else. I am able to use key commands, however.

    I've swapped out the mouse and I'm still having problems, I know it's nothing to do with the input jack b/c one mouse is USB and the other is multi-pin.

    Any recommendations?

    Many thanks,
    MM

       Have you gone into the mouse settings in control panel and tried changing the sensitivity settings and whether things are opened by single/double click?

      If yes, tell me and I've another suggestion, but that would be my first bet in your situation.

        No, I'll do that when I get home tonight and post an answer tomorrow.

        Thanks for the suggestion!
