Hello, recently my mouse has been acting very strangely. At first, it seemed like it was just clicking on its own, as menus would just open randomly on the desktop. I then attempted restarting the computer several times while unplugging the mouse and also uninstalling the mouse drivers, but neither worked. I have found that the problem only occurs when I right click, then the mouse goes haywire. I tried using the mouse on another computer and the same problem occurred so I believe it is a problem with the mouse. Also, whenever I tried plugging in a different mouse, a message saying "USB device not recognized" popped up. Is this just a sign of my mouse dying or is it some other problem? Any help is appreciated.

If the mouse doesn't work with two different computers I would have to believe there is a problem with the mouse.

 

If you are going to change out a mouse, you should do this with the computer off.  After it is installed, then turn on the computer.

Yep if it does it on more than one pc than that is a bad mouse. basic mice can be replaced very cheaply.
