When I click the mouse it will occasionally double click on it's own.

System: Dell Precision T1650

Ops Sys: Windows 8.1

 

Tried  2 different mice, Logitech and original Dell - wired

Tried different USB ports. On the computer - front and back and on the Monitor.

Rebooted, cold booted - still happens - sometimes when it restarts it will be okay for awhile but then start again.

 

Software: happens in any progam, if you left click it will occasionally double click on its own.

Open the Device Manager and double click on Mice and other pointing devices.

 

You should see HID - compliant mouse, double click on it.

 

Click on the Driver tab, then uninstall the driver.

 

Restart the computer.  The computer will install a new driver for the mouse.

I uninstalled the driver, then rebooted the computer.  When Windows booted up again, it appears to have installed the same driver automatically (the driver for the mouse is “HID-compliant mouse” again).

 

It didn’t ask me to take any action or choose a driver, it just did its own thing in the background.

That's the way it works.  You did the right thing.

 

Did this resolve the issue?
