Try a different mouse on it to see if it does the same thing. Your mouse might be failing on you. If it does the same thing with a different mouse then it might be the software problem or perhaps drivers. You can also try to uninstall and reinstall the drivers for your mouse. If your running windows 2000 or later version of windows you can uninstall in device manager and restart the computer with the mouse still connected and windows should reinstall drivers for the mouse automatically. Goodluck!

Find your way into control panel and check mouse settings I believe the middle mouse button is adjusted there. The details are different with each brand of mouse but this should point you in the right direction.
I presume you can see the motion sensing red LED or laser beam shining under the mouse. If not, that has gone bad, and it would probably be more economical to replace the mouse than to attempt a repair.
If the light is on under the mouse, try cleaning the lenses (both LED and photoreceptor) with a cotton swab dampened with isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol). Don't scrub, just wipe the optics gently until clean.
I assume you want to know how to copy and paste??? To select click and drag the curser over the item you wish to copy (it will change to a different color) with the curser still in the colored bit RIGHT click your mouse, scroll down to COPY. Move your curser to where you wish to put your copied bit, RIGHT click and scroll down to PASTE. Viola!
Did you icons get big too? Pressing Ctrl + Mouse Wheel Scroll with make your icons bigger (also Right-Click > View > Large, Medium, Small). Did your resolution change? In Windows 7 and 8, you can check your resolution by right-clicking on the Desktop and select "Personalize". From there, select "Display" located to the lower left of the window. This should show you three options: Smaller, Medium, Larger. Choose the one you like the best. From here you can change your computers Resolution by clicking "Adjust Resolution" and select the one that shows you the most screen that you are able to still read. Most websites are designed to a minimum of 1024 by 768, so I would select at least that.
I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 >>arrow heads then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7 and windows 8 once you open the mouse you will see mouse and keyboard center link mid page click on that to change your mouse right click in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar Click start right click on my computer select properties device manager control scroll to mice and pointing devices you might see a yellow question mark? right update driver Click on >> control panel all control panel items mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons pointers pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have the options update driver rollback driver or uninstall in xp. In windows 7 click start control panel hardware and sound mouse you will see the same tabs and options as with xp Hope this helps.

if you can still move the curser with the pad then tap to click is probably disabled. go to control pannel and double click the mouse icon. you will find the option to enable tap to click either on the buttons, pointer options, or hardware tabs. it varys with the manufacturer so i cannot say for sure. on dell computers, it's on the dell touchpad options tab.
This sounds like the functionality of the mouse pad, in the better mouse pad drivers, there is an area designated for scrolling, usually up and down is on the right edge of the pad, and left and right is on the top. You should be able to turn this off in your mouse drivers, with these drivers almost always comes a little icon on the bottom right corner of the screen, double clicking this or right clicking should bring you some options.
