I am using an optical mouse, plugged into ps2 port.
When I single click on an item, it executes a double click instead of selecting.

I ran my anti virus; anti spyware; Malwarebytes'; CCleaner; updated Windows; unplugged & plugged in mouse; Tool options; options from control panel and still have the problem. I did not do a system restore though.

Any advice is appreciated.

Either replace the mouse...or uninstall the drivers (using Device Manager) and reboot the system.

You can try going to control panel > mouse and slowing down your doubleclick speed, but most likely your mouse needs to be retired. Try putting a buddy's mouse on your system and see if it has the same problem. If the replacement mouse does the same thing then its not the mouse. If it works right, then you need a new mouse.
