My mouse left click misbehaves... a lot. When I try to left click it will double click rather frequently but not on a consistent basis. It goes through streaks if I open the mouse settings in Control panel and set the double click speed to super fast and just click once and wait then repeat it will open the folder maybe once out of 10 clear indication that I'm not just going insane and clicking twice on accident.
Okay so at first I figured this was a hardware problem. I tried switching the mouse to another USB port and the problem persisted. Next I figured this was a problem with the mouse hardware wearing out, I removed the mouse and plugged in my old one because being a gamer I always make sure I have a backup. It initially worked but started to have the same problem. At this point I got rather suspicious as this mouse did not have this problem when I stopped using it and I find it very doubtful that it would develop the exact problem while sitting on a shelf.
So I proceeded to use my limited knowledge to try and hunt down an infection this basically consisted of running scans on various programs more frequently based on when the mouse was pissing me off more than usual. I havent turned up any results through Avast! or Malwarebytes. But because of the very simple test of plugging in a different mouse I'm lead to believe this isnt a hardware problem. A competitive gamer friend informed me of a friend that had the same problem and that it was from a virus. He said it was visible in the processes list so I spent a few fun hours checking over the process list with several different references (since some of them list absolutely stupid information so whenever I found a process I wasn't sure about I cross referenced it a lot) nothing came up.
I've spent a couple hours googling and binging the problem in different word variations and basically all I get are people asking stupid questions on Yahoo! and being told extremely simple suggestions about checking the mouse settings in control panel etc... snore I've done all that and isnt very helpful because of the nature of the problem I cant really find much useful information
I"m running Windows 7 64 bit and using a Razer Imperator 5600 DPI, my backup mouse is a Razer Deathadder that functioned perfectly until I stopped using it.
This was the best tech help forum I stumbled upon so I'm asking for help here as this is really pissing me off messes with my ability to game -.-;
