Right button doesn't work; single click with left button
Right, this is my issue:
i spilled tea on my LogiTech MX 1000 optical cordless mouse a few weeks ago.
this morning the right button was not working. then, in either outlook or in any window i open, one click with the left mouse brings up the options menu for the right button, unless i click on the close, minimise or reply options.
Re: right button doesn't work; single click with left...
You can probably repair this yourself if you are technically inclined and careful.
There is a tutorial here showing how to disassemble the mouse: http://www.vk2k.com/Logitech-MX1000-Battery/
The microswitches for the buttons can be opened if you are very careful, and then you'll have to clean the contacts. Regular rubbing alcohol should work fine. Be careful not to lose any parts when opening the switch.
If the switch contacts have corroded, you may have to replace the contacts or the entire switch. You may be able to take a similar switch from another mouse (many manufacturers use similar switches). SWometimes there are MX1000 or similar logitech nonfunctioning mice being sold on eBay for parts.

<p>The Logitech MX 1000 is a laser mouse that connects to your
home computer. It is called a laser mouse, it uses an optical beam instead of a
rubber ball navigation. Over time, the area around the package is dusty or
dirty and affect the functionality of a mouse. If this is the case with the
mouse, a quick cleaning to start working perfectly in no time. <br />
<p>1. Disconnect the mouse cable from the USB port of your
computer and turn the mouse upside down. Note the lens optical beam in the
middle of the bottom of the mouse. <br />
<p>2. Bang on the bottom of the mouse to get rid of dust and
dirt that have accumulated near the lens optical beam over time. <br />
<p>3. Use microfiber cloth (a different substance can damage
the lens) and clean the bottom surface of the mouse as well. <br />
<p>4. Let your nails along the sides of the rubber feet on the
bottom of the mouse all the dirt that accumulated in the crevices to remove. <br />
