Wacom Intuos 3 unintentional double click

I am using an Intuos 3 (PTZ-630/G) with WinXP Pro SP3, and I have recently been having a problem wherein a single-click on the tablet mouse registers as a double-click on my computer. It does not happen with every click, but it does happen very often. I have tried altering the double-click speed in Windows, but it has not changed anything.

    I have the same problem with a Graphire4 tablet. I suspect the pen is broken.

    I have the exact same problem... I think the pen tip is "bouncing" or something. Though, it doesn't always happen, so I don't know if it's a physical problem with the pen, or a software/driver issue.

    This happens to me when I use the tablet mouse, but not the pen. Probably almost half of my clicks are registered as double clicks. It's very irritating. I've reinstalled the drivers numerous times, and it hasn't helped.

    Juste the same here and the tablet is just a few months old!

    I noticed this happening on my desktop machine but oddly not my laptop. I suspect it's a driver problem and not a hardware issue, but I can't seem to fix it either.

  • Anonymous Mar 19, 2009

    Just confirmation that I see the same problem. I've reinstalled the drivers twice with no change. I disassembled my mouse, blew out some loose hairs, and reassembled it, but no change.

    Double click when I use the left click on the intuos 3 5 button mouse.

    Same thing here using a Intuos 3 on OSx. And i'm having the same problem with another Intuos 3 on WinXP. (very frustrating when OSx opens 100 files (double click) when I only want to copy them using drag and drop)

    Single click with pen on tablet registers as double click on Win XP SP3. The pen click is configured to a single click in the tablet preferences.

    I have the same problem with an Intuous 3 on Mac OSX 10.4.

    I've done all the usual: played with the settings, reinstalled drivers etc., but to no avail.

    I'm beginning to suspect it's a hardware issue, but whether it's a hardware issue with the tablet, the pen the USB port, RAM, whatever, I don't know.

    I am having the same issue on my Intel Mac running OS 10.5- it's really frustrating because it takes me twice as long to do something in Illustrator... Help!

    I am having the exact same issue. Intuos 3, Windows XP, only happens when using the mouse and the pen works fine.

I've been having the same problem and I think I just figured it out.

I'm using a Wacom Intuos 3 on Windows Vista. I think one of the Windows automatic updates caused this problem. I've just been putting up with it for way too long when I finally thought to check the driver.

I started by going to the control panel and typing in "mouse" in the search box. Then I clicked on "change mouse click settings". When I selected the "hardware" tab across the top I noticed that Wacom Mouse was not highlighted. I selected it and clicked on the "properties" button. I clicked on the "driver" tab across the top and clicked on the "driver details" button. Then I selected the wacommousefilter.sys driver and chose "ok". After that my double click problem has stopped.

You can also download the newest driver by going here:

I hope this helps anyone still having this problem.

    I am a graphic artist for a screen printing company and I've been searching for a solution to this intensely irritating problem for almost a year now. It has driven me to screaming profanities and slamming the mouse against the tablet in frustration on several occasions. It was so bad that I set my left and right bumpers to UNDO and REDO to deal with the mistakes made from unwanted mouse clicks. Uninstalling and reinstalling new and old drivers did nothing. I was ready to give up and buy a new laptop and tablet.

    Thank you so much, this solution worked immediately and has saved my sanity and my savings account.

    Holy cow this one here did it for me! I've been fighting with drivers and updates for weeks now and never figured it could just be as simple as a cleaning. Dirt! Go figure!

    Thanks for posting this solution, everyone talks about faulty drivers and bad updates, which could be the case, but in mine it was just cat hairs, lol! I just saved 90$ yeah!

Have you checked the driver settings to make sure a click doesn't register as a double click?

I did have an issue with a double clicking of the left mouse button.

My solution was to open the mouse and un solder, the right side button switch out. Thats it. The circuit has enough juice for the wheel and other 3 buttons to function properly now. I didnt use that button anyway.

If this doesnt work you can replace the button switch which isnt working with the one you just replaced. I am very happy now.

    My mouse was double-clicking as well. I just solved the problem by taking my ZC-100 mouse apart. In addition to dirt on the bottom felt, there are two other reasons for problems: 1) A little plastic stop on the click button broke and was getting in the way. Removing it solved that problem and didn't affect operation. 2) Lint gets up in the roller mechanism.
    To get at the insides, peel the felt off the bottom, then peal back the clear plastic under it to reach the single screw that holds it together. When the screw is removed, the bottom will separate from the top and you can get at the works. Clean the roller with a tooth brush and make sure there isn't a broken piece of plastic impeding the button. Reassemble. You can either replace the felt with a piece of cloth, contact glued on - or leave off the felt. It seems to work fine either way.
    I figured this out, unfortunately, AFTER I bought a replacement on ebay.

Where can i get a wacom bamboo tablet?

You can buy them new from places like Amazon or directly from Wacom. Just to confuse you more-- it used to be Bamboo, Intuos, and Cintiq. Now the entry level tablets are the Intuos, the mid-level has become the Intuos Pro, and then the Cintiq.

How can i install intuos gd 0608-u on pc running windows8.0?

The first thing you have to do is upgrade your Windows from version 8.0 to 8.1. Version 8.0 just has too many bugs plus it shouldn't automatically update anymore Check this MS page out.

Install the latest Windows 8 1 Update Windows Help

Here are the bare bones manual installation steps from the page:
Install the update manually

Make sure your PC is plugged in and connected to the Internet using a non-metered connection. Don't disconnect, unplug, or turn off your PC while the update is being installed.

Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap
Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
(If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right
corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up,
click Settings, and then click Change PC

Tap or click Update and recovery, and then tap or click
Windows Update.

Tap or click Check now.

If updates are found, tap or click View details.

In the list of updates, select the update containing
KB 2919355, and then tap or click Install.

If you're prompted for an administrator password or
confirmation, enter the password or provide

After the installation is complete, restart your PC and
sign in.

Note: If you don't see KB 2919355 in the list of available updates, you might be missing one or more required updates. Follow the previous steps to check for updates, install all important updates, particularly KB 2919442, restart your PC, and then check for KB 2919355 again.

Once you successfully update to Windows 8.1 we can tackle your Wacom products. There have been plenty of documented problems getting the Wacom Intuos Drivers working in Windows 8.x. Just google on "Wacom Intuos Driver Windows 8.1"

First get the latest Intuos driver version from the Wacom website.
I couldn't find any separate drivers for the Wacom mouse
