Lately my mouse has been very sensitive. I click on something, like to delete an email and i end up deleting two or more. I click on a print and I end up printing more than one and not know it. I went to the control panel and slowed down the click speed etc and still doesn't seem to work, When I go to trouble shootint it says there is and active X something or other on the page and will not let me get any where with it.
I think it depends on what kind of mouse you have. I hate to say it, and I'm not trying to say this in a mean way, but you probably just have to get used to the mouse. The mouse works differently. I had to get used to my new mouse when I got my new computer about a month in a half ago. Hope this helps

Easiest way to find out if a mouse is broken is to either try it on a different computer or run your computer from a bootable disc temporarily such as Ubuntu to see if it works there. If it still has problems the mouse is bad. If it doesn't that means that there is an issue with your operating system installation.
I assume this is a USB mouse and it should work. Attach the mouse and check your device manager that can be accessed by doing the following: Find the icon for My Computer (XP) or Computer (Vista, Win 7). Right click on it and then choose the hardware tab. When that tab opens, click on device manager. Check the mouse item to see if your mouse is recognized. It may have an exclamation mark on it. If so, right click on it and delete it. Check the USB devices at the end of the list to make sure there are no exclamation marks on any. If there are, delete them. Restart the computer to see if the devices are found. This should work. The only problem you could have is if the mouse itself is bad or if your motherboard is having a problem.

Other than checking with the manufacturer for updated drivers or known issues - or attempting to roll-back the driver if a new one has been installed recently, I can't think of anything, seems to be a sticking button or otherwise faulty mouse.
