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

I assume the multiple messages you refer to are email messages.
If so, you can delete multiple messages as follows:
1. For messages listed one above the other in a row, use you mouse to select the first message so that is is highlighted. Then hold down your shift key and select the last message in your continuous list of messages. All the messages from the first to the last should now be highlighted (i.e., selected). While in this mode with the messages highlighted, press the delete key on your keyboard, or alternately, use your mouse and select the delete icon at the top of the email screen (it looks like a trash can).
You can also just drag the selected emails while holding the shift key down into your system trash.
2. For multiple messages that are not in a continuous list, while holding down the option key, use your mouse to highlight each message by clicking on it. When all the messages you wish to delete are selected, as above, press the delete key on your keyboard or use you mouse to select the delete button at the top of the email screen.
These instructions are for when you are using the apple mail program. It will likely work with other mail programs.
Left click on the top email one time so it is highlighted. Then move your mouse down the list as far as you can go. Then push and hold the "shift" button on your keyboard and click the left mouse button on the last email you can reach. All the emails between the top one you clicked and the bottom one you "shift and click" should light up. Now push the "delete" key on your keyboard and all those that are highlighted will delete. Whatever you can do to highlight more emails will delete them quicker.

Go to far left of message next to first letter of firstname you wish to delete and click and hold left mouse button down and drag to end of selection you wish to delete then let mouse button go without further clicking and hit delete... if this doesn't work you can either go to end of selection and manually try to backspace delete each character until all addresses are gone...
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.
