Hey, recently my mouse has begun double clicking when I single click. It happens mostly in Google Chrome and in My Documents. I haven't really encountered the problem in other places (could just be a coincidence). It's not all the time, but if I'm on the computer for 2 hours, it will happen a few times, usually all in a row too.

I have a Dell M-UVDEL1. It might just be wearing out because I've had it since I bought the computer in 2005 (Christmas, so really 2006). I'd rather try and fix it/ see whats wrong before buying a new mouse. Any suggestions?

This is my mouse if it helps

Hi Trevor

If at all possible try swapping mice with another system to see if the problem follows the mouse.
If it does replace it.

Mice are pretty cheap. I bought one at the local dollar store yesterday for under 10 bucks
In the beginning there was the command line.
