Hi,
I am having a problem with my mouse. I posted a while back about but unfortunatly I had to leave town and couldn't post sow my topic was dropped. I have tried repeatly to remove this virus with adaware, spybot, hjt, norton and it doesent seem to want to leave. It causes the mouse to double click quite often when I either have the left button down, or clicked once. At times the occurences or less frequent, say about once every five clicks, but recently it has becoming frequent(about every other click). This is particallary annoying with clicking and draging, as it will double click in the miidle of the drag operation and I have to start over. I use a standard dell logitech laser mouse, not cordless. If anybody can offer any advice it'd bee much appreiciated. Thank you.

What makes you think it's a virus?
Do you know the name of it?
Have you tried another mouse?

:thumbsup: A Double Clicking Virus :flowers:

Well thats a first for me. How bout just "cleaning" the mouse? If that don't work try setting the mouse controls in the control panel.

Hope that helps a bit.

Hi, thanks for the feedback.

I've tried fixing the sensitivity in the control panel before, and that doesn't seem to help. I don't think I was right in calling it a virus, but I one of the members of the hjt analysis team on this website had told me it was a cookie that could easily be eliminated by Ad aware or spybot. I've tried repeatly to use those and tried deleting all cookies but it still comes back. Also, besides using dust-off on the lense, is there anything else I can do to clean a led mouse?

Thanks for your help.

Have you tried doing an online virus scan at www.trendmicro.com ? I know this may seem odd but the way viruses change settings now days you never know what may have happened. If its an optical (LED) mouse then all you have to do is wipe the lens clean. If it is a wireless mouse then try changing the batteries.
