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 friend you can open your mouse, first you need to find the screw in your mouse. Then after you find the screw used a screw driver to open it and in order to open you have to remove all screw. then When you open your mouse kindly clean it remove the mouse board and blower it to dry also make the entire mouse dry before you back the mouse from it proper formation.
Recheck the magnifier to see if its set right. Go to Control Panel and click on the Mouse icon.
Then the mouse properties will appear showing the mouse buttons.
In the Left column is the button settings. The bottom one is the Right
Button, which is set for Magnify. Whenever you hit the Right
Side button the magnifier will turn on. To turn it off, hit the Right
Side Button and off it goes. You can change any of the button
settings by clicking on the drop down.
Hope this helps. Bud
Having experienced the same problem with (2) Intellimouse Explorers I analyzed the problem and found a solution after driver updates failed to correct it.
Remove the single screw inside the battery compartment, lift off the rear portion of the mouse top cover, then gently lift up the back end of the remaining shell.
Once you have the inner workings exposed, use a Q-Tip to dab rubbing alcohol on the right click button's micro switch, manually clicking it a couple dozen times to clean the button's inner workings. Do not work about shorting out the mouse, as alcohol is non-conductive, and non-corrosive. It will not harm the electronic circuitry. It doesn't hurt to do the same for the left click micro switch and the side button switches as well, as long as the mouse is disassembled.
Next use a clean Q-Tip to clean the edges of the top & bottom housing. This is the most likely cause of the right click button failure - there are small particles of debris lodged along the edge where the travel of the right click button is supposed to depress, but cannot.
Next, turn the top cover over and move the catch on the right underside forward and push it gently downward to uncatch the edge of that latching clip. The click on the left underside is a bit more complicated and requires a gentle lifting of the rear pins and moving the left clip more to the left and downward to release it from it's locking position. Once you have freed the actual button's cover from the rest of the top cover, clean it thoroughly with a Q-Tip swab soaked with rubbing alcohol.
While the works are exposed, check for hair and debris around the scroll wheel as well. The small plastic wheel cover lifts off starting from the read and tipping up and forward.
Carefully reassemble all parts and hte right click function should now be restored. The debris has been removed and the right click now has it's full range of travel restored.
Unless your left mouse button has been severely damaged, it is unlikely that a loose button is the cause of your problem. More likely, it is your touchpad. Chances are your touchpad is set to click when tapped. Oversensitive touchpads can click randomly when you're dragging your finger across the touchpad.
To test this, position your cursor over a link (or other button) but don't press the left mouse button. Instead, lightly tap the touchpad itself. If the link or button is clicked, go to your Control Panel and adjust the Mouse options so your touchpad no longer clicks when tapped. It's usually a setting titled "tap to click" or something along those lines.
