Mouse will randomly double click or have to click several times to work

My mouse will randomly double click on its own. I have checked the settings and it is set to 1 click. Then sometimes I have to click 3-4 times for it to work. I have had this mouse for about a year. It just started doing this about a week ago. I have recently changed batteries, that didn't help. Could there be something wrong with the lazer? The mouse has hit the floor several times over the past year (thanks to my felines).

I'd suggest that you try another mouse, maybe it's too old to work.

For auto clicking, you may also try mouse clicker software. Find out how to use auto clicker from here.

You mouse may be too old, the switch inside will get worn over time making signals to your computer worse.

I had the same problem with my Logitech mouse after only 5 months of use.

Please check whether there are any buttons on the side of the mouse you may be clicking these at the same time as you are single clicking.

You could also try going into Control Panel --> Mouse
Try Slowing down the double click speed
If that doesn't work try speeding it up

Another problem with a laser mouse is it jumps around the screen randomly if there is a pattern on your mouse mat or desk, or if either are too shiny or even glass as the laser reflects incorrectly on these type of surfaces.

Double clicking, left button

Hello, if the mouse is double clicking randomly means the mouse button or button soldering are broken, maybe you might want to try opening it up and resoldering the mouse button, if it doesn't work you can use an old mouse button that fits the space and solder that one in the mouse that's having problems, reassemble and see if it works, the good news is that most of the time it does.

My mouse keeps double (triple) clicking even if i only click once.

The problem is with the PC and not with the mouse. The solution depends upon the installed driver in the PC for mouse (like intel etc).

I have a manhattan wireless mouse, model number 176811. the pointer works fine but when i double left click to open anything nothing happens, i have to hit the button 3 or sometimes 4 times to open file??

You may not be double clicking fast enough. In the Windows System Control Panel, there is a Mouse Settings control panel. You can adjust the double click rate in the Mouse Settings control panel.

When i click on any icon, cpu doesnt follow through with the double click command

There's several possibilities as to why this is happening.
The first is that you may be moving the mouse some as you are clicking, when this happens windows registers this as two single clicks. Depending on what mouse and drivers it will be different. Go into "Control Panel" then select "Mouse", find the setting for "Double Click" (most likely under buttons, maybe another button of some sort to access this feature). Once you have it up depending on make and model you'll be able to adjust the settings for "Double Click". Make adjustment and test them in the "test area" until you have what you need.
Second, if you have a 3 button mouse set the center button to "Double Click" and use it to avoid this problem.
Third, Windows may be causing the problem by doing maintenance task in the background. This is usually caused by Windows adjusting your Virtual Memory. To fix this go into "Control Panel", choose "System", goto the "Advanced Tab", choose "Settings", goto this "Advanced Tab", under "Virtual Memory", choose "Change". Once there choose "Custom Size" then set "Initial" and "Maximum" to the same size, this size should be 4 time your RAM plus 12MB or the the current Max whichever is larger. Select This will stop windows from constantly adjusting your Virtual Memory, which is what makes Windows not respond to your double clicks. If you need further help respond to this solution and will notify me and I'll try to help you further.

Mouse left button double clicks all by itself about every other time it is pressed. Very annoying. May be an internal contact problem, but don't know how to open it up to check.

Recommend you check your mouse settings on your computer (i.e. mouse properties buried in control panel settings as found on Windows XP); make sure double-click speed is not set at an over-sensitive setting.
Might also check there is nothing sticky under the mouse key, causing it to get stuck (e.g. splashed soda pop or something that got under there).

Mouse sometimes double clicks so that it opens 2 things at a time, what is causing that. It also seems to be sticking I have to press it a couple of times to get it to click

You need to go into the control panel and choose the mouse icon.
From there you can set the double-click speed. They give you a little box to click to calibrate the click speed.

Wireless Optic Logitech mouse performace

I had the exact same problem with my original Logitech wireless mouse that came with a wireless keyboard. I eventually figured that the button component inside the mouse wasn't making consistent contact causing unintended double clicking or dropping while dragging. I fixed it by doing some soldering to switch the left mouse button with the right mouse button, since I didn't have to use double clicking or dragging with the right mouse button. It worked pretty well for several months until the switched left button started showing the same problem again. Now my newer Logitech mouse (it's more expensive Nano wireless mouse) is having the same problem after about 1 year using it. I think there's a serious durability problem with the button component that Logitech is putting on their mice. I may do the same trick again on this mouse, but now I don't consider Logitech as a good mouse manufacturer anymore. They used to make good quality hardwares but I guess they aren't that good anymore with all those cheap Chinese suppliers for their parts. :(

MSI mouse thats included in MSI S420

you need to check the mouse settings, go to Start>control panel>printers and other hardware>mouse and check that it isn't set to one click as being a double click, check all other settings also especially the click speed may be set too fast and is encouraging a double click.
