About a week ago, I noticed that when working in the Windows folder browser, and inside some openGL applications, the mouse starts acting erratic when clicking. Sometimes when you want to click and hold, it will release, then re-select.

I've tried the computer with multiple mice, all that work on different computers around the house, and they all have the same problem on the computer. I also re-installed some drivers, but that also didn't help. The computer is an older Dell running XP service pack 3. The computer has been scanned for viruses and I don't believe that's the problem. It also seems like the mouse could be confusing the left and right mouse button sometimes. Again, I have checked with different mice and they all have this problem. Thank you for any help.

Have you done the most basic mouse check, going into the Mouse settings in Control Panel to make sure speeds and configuration are correct?

Is this a PS2 mouse or a USB mouse?

Does this computer have a PS2 mouse port ?(usually color coded green)
Wondering if you tried that, if so.

Did you try other USB ports, or always the same one?
