    I cannot make my house highlight text. I click and hold the left button, then mouse over the text, but it will only highlight one or two letters, then it stops, even though I am still holding down the left button. Occassionally it will highlight an entire line, but when I go to the next line, it stops highlighting.

    This is a simple problem, but very aggravating, and I can't imagine what's going wrong. Thanks for any help.

    Sorry, I should have specified. It's a Logictech optical mouse.

    It's working fine now...(she said, slapping her forehead for being so dense), I cleaned it with a little clorox water, and it did the trick. Thank you so much!
