70% of the time when I try to highlight anything I click and drag over the selection and as soon as I release the mouse button the highlighted selection unhighlights. Sometimes it only catches one word in a sentence. In Outlook when I click on an email for the preview in the right hand screen the email opens many times. Both these issues are getting worse the past few days.

There have been issues with at least one recent update to MS-Office 2010 (I encountered it with the one released on 12/8/2015) and, perhaps, other versions of Office as well.


See the thread I started on the Microsoft Community Forums.  You could try uninstalling recent updates to MS-Office one-by-one to see if you go back to normal.

I'm running Office 2007 and don't know how to check what updates have been done.
