I made changes to the settings for the mouse in Ease of Settings and in the Start Menu. It did not help. Also everything I move the cursor over, highlights. The cursor started opening links just a few days ago, gradually. It didn't open everything, now it does. The highlighing problem started yesterday. I am using a pc, win 7, IE 8.I appreciate any tips/suggestions as this is very frustrating.

In ease of access there a check box for open a window when mouse is hovering over it, uncheck that.

you could restore to a date before you made changes if that's the issue.

I did uncheck the box in ease of access, and I restored to a prior date. I'm going to try that again but go back further. I guess it won't hurt to try a new mouse so I'll get one later on today. Thank you.
