System:  Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit with latest 'important' updates

Laptop:  ASUS K52F

Wireless Mouse:      Logitech M310

Wireless Keyboard: Logitech K520

Using Logitech Unifying Receiver plugged into USB 2.0 port

 

For several weeks I have had strange behavior from my mouse.  Sometimes a single left click on a folder opens the folder as though I had double clicked.  When I try to move the folder from one place on the desktop to another location, the folder keeps opening as though I have double clicked.  Sometimes single clicking on the top bar of a window makes the window open full screen as though I have double clicked on the bar. Sometimes when I left click on an item on the desktop to move the item to another place on the desktop, the item does not move - nothing happens.  This is all intermittent - because sometimes the mouse works just fine.

(Note that I have checked & 'folder options' is set to open a window on double click.)

 

I have tried another M310 mouse and another Logitech Unifying Receiver.  Replacing the Logitech Unifying Receiver with another solved the problem for 2 weeks & I was happy.  But now the problem is back & I don't have a clue on how to fix this.

 

Since replacing mouse & receiver does not permanently solve the problem, could the issue be with the Windows 7 drivers?  I tried updating these drivers but Windows reported that there are no updates.

 

How can I fix this?  Uninstall the mouse drivers & reinstall them (how??)?  Something else?

Checking in the control panel for the mouse operation, there is an option for "double click speed".  This may be set to fast and the control is sensing a double instead of one.

Well you could get used to single click, I actually have been single clicking myself for a while on both windows and Linux.

 

But to turn it off:

It might have been a windows update that changed the setting, who knows.

when a micro switch in your mouse button starts to go bad is will produce a double click with a single press and a double click will do a quad click.  try a different mouse see if problem corrects itself.
