Hello everyone!
Has anyone encountered a problem with Windows SP3 where the left mouse click becomes oversensitive and clicks up to four or so times for the price of one click?.. It also affects the copy/paste function because the text is dropped by a perceived click/release of button that didn't happen...
It isn't terminal, but it's highly annoying... Do we know of any fixes or patches to cure this please?

Thanks all, Paul

Yes the mouse click button is made up of a metallic spring which wears out after a lot of use and looses its tension resulting in the behavior you are experiencing.

You can buy mouse buttons(they come in packs of 12 to 50) and replace the button if you can. You need a screwdriver and soldering iron.

Or you can just buy a new mouse.
