When i pick up things with the mouse cursor and move them somewhere else eg; puting pictures into a new folder or when playing cards on the computer, the mouse drops the item that im moving and picks up what ever it is over at that time and moves that instead. some times this can happen a couple of times from one location to another. i also have problems when i use excel, if i drag over a few boxes, say to merge cells the mouse keeps letting go of the first box and grabbing the second or third box instead, or dragging something i didnt want moved somewhere else then i have to back up and start again. this makes a couple of minutes paperwork take ages.

You'll have to use the keyboard shorcuts CRTL + C to copy, and CRTL + V to paste. But you'll have to highlight the portion of text that you are wishing to copy using the touchpad. It can take a bit of practice to highlight what you want, but keep at it and you'll pick it up in no time.
My laptop does this and so does my Linux computer. An optical mouse needs to work on a featureless surface. My oak grain desk is not good. A mouse pad with a picture is also bad. Use a clear textured surface - like a one colour mouse pad... Or Try a new mouse - a cheap one will do for testing. The tail on your mouse may be breaking. (Yes, they do that...)
It seems to happen with optical mice on random pattern surfaces.
at first go to my computer..then in the meny option (where file , edit, view, toll is located), click the tools button and click on folder option. a dialogue box will appear then. in the dialogue box, go to the general tab and point to the 3rd option "click items as follows" and then select single click to open a file.. thank you
Your mouse could be defective, but let's try a few things first.
Try to remove any wireless devices close to it (i.e. wireless router)or try to plug it in a new USB port.
Last thing try to use a very dark mousepad. The laser respond to reflection so any white on a mousepad combined with some sun light could result in a free for all mouse pointer.
Conflict of drivers, Interrupts and DMA addresses.
To fix: 1. Goto Start, Run, type 'devmgmt.msc' and hit enter 2. Find Mouse and other Pointing devices, double click to open, and highlight whatever is in there. 3. Hit DEL 4. Repeat until no other items in there 5. Reboot

if you have a usb mouse try plugging this in and see if it works opening your files etc.... if it does then do to control panel>system>device manager and and look for pointing devices, right click on touchpad and select uninstall. Reboot your computer and remove the usb mouse, windows will pick up your touchpad as new hardware and install it. Hopefully this will resolve your problem
