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. :(

Where do you have the transmitter sitting? If it is below a desk (i.e., sitting on top of the computer tower, etc.) it may not be emitting a strong or consistent signal. Try moving it within a clear line of sight to the mouse. If that doesn't work, it could be a problem with the mouse itself and need to be replaced.

Hope this helps, let me know

Check the CCORNELL posting for the solution. Your mouse is double clicking when it should be only single clicking.

Thanks! I fixed the problem by installing a USB mouse and using fn+f9. That unlocked the mouse so I could use the pointer leaving just the keyboard problem. I then tried reconnecting the wireless keyboard (by using the button on the receiver and under the keyboard) Hey Presto!!

SOURCE: My Logitech LX5 wireless optical mouse has never worked properly

hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? Friend try my gathered solutions. This problem has a simple solution—replace your batteries! Low batteries in a wireless device will cause all sorts of problems. In a mouse, this typically means that the cursor slows down, jerks around, or seems to hit an invisible wall. Fresh batteries should fix things right up.
If new batteries don't fix the problem, you have some sort of wireless interference. Try moving the wireless receiver to a new position—preferably away from other wireless devices (wireless network adapters/base stations, cordless phones, baby monitors, and the like). If interference continues, see if you can change transmitting/receiving channels on one of the devices, or consider turning off the interfering device while you're computing. Good luck friend hope i helped you.

Unfortunately,these devices(and I mean optical/wireless mice of all brands) are prone to failure because of tolerances.That's why,for the majority of them,they go for such low prices(in the big outlets).It may be that the very small contacts inside have given up the ghost. Better to get a new one than spend $ to figure it out.

Mouse moves, click and drag by itself


That sounds a lot like someone has remote access to your computer. Try changing your Firewall settings or try to get a different IP address. Careful messing around with the IP though, it's easy to create a problem when doing that.
