It's very irritating and constantly creates little problems that are annoyingly unintended or just irritating to see. Basically the thing has decided that a good portion of the time it's going to behave like a double click even though I've only single clicked it. It's been doing this for a few days and after thinking it over and reviewing it a bit this seems to be the problem.
I don't know how to fix it though, I tried tweaking with the mouse settings, with what can be done with them, and it's made no difference. If anything tweaking with the mouse settings raises more questions or reveals a little more detail (albeit more confusingly so) on what the actual problem is??? I mean it's as if it's double clicking or reclicking randomly and sometimes it single clicks properly. If I hold the button down it sometimes single clicks only to 'reclick' or double click itself shortly thereafter. It's very frustrating and constantly resultant in things which are minorly irritating or just outright needless and unintended on my part (I don't need that darn file open, I just clicked it once, don't open that darn file please).
I've done a bit of research on what can be done to fix the problem and I can either say it's a hardware problem (which I can't test because I own only one mouse and one pc, so no control party on either side) or I can see if it's the drivers by unistalling and then reinstalling them, which I'm recalcitrant to do because: 1) I'm not a computer tech and have no idea what I'm doing even if I went and found myself a step-by-step instruction manual online or whatever and 2) I'm pretty sure unistalling the mouse drivers would disable the mouse, right? So if I did how am I supposed to reinstall them? Seeing as I would have no working mouse.
Anyway, that's my tech problem for the day, any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thankyou very much.
