Sometimes when I'm using this mouse it likes to read every click as a double click. When dragging something, or when single clicking, it often performs the double click function. It gets annoying when I have to undo, or close something, and use keyboard to navigate to and move documents.

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. :(
I've had DeathAdder for about 1 year and it started to do EXACTLY what previous people described, double-click instead of single, stops firing when I hold it in QuakeLive/Counter Strike (have to press it again, etc. etc.) windows cannot be dragged because it needs to be holding left drag, never had this before. same happens on MULTIPLE machines with this mouse, tried 2 diff laptops and desktop and even mac computer....so it's must be something with the mouse not OS/Computer
Please check whether there are any buttons on the side of the mouse you may be clicking these at the same time as you are single clicking.
You could also try going into Control Panel --> Mouse
Try Slowing down the double click speed
If that doesn't work try speeding it up
Another problem with a laser mouse is it jumps around the screen randomly if there is a pattern on your mouse mat or desk, or if either are too shiny or even glass as the laser reflects incorrectly on these type of surfaces.
Seems there is something internally wrong in your mouse or you use the mouse on a very strange material base. I have heard that optical mouses can have strange behavior when used on glass tables or thick woolen carpets, a mouse pad would solve it. If that does not work and it's still under warranty, just ask for replacement or repair.
ok. i see your having great time using that mouse and you cared that device for several years. Try open your mouse and carefully remove these buttons of your mouse to clean those dirty stuff stacked on those linings( I believe that you haven't done this before, right?). I believe that this will need to clean a bit to give it back on track again.
