    I have a mouse that left clicks sticks from time to time but it is not just the mouse i am using but was also the mouse i used before replacing the last one. I have updated, restored, un-installed etc to no avail.Nothing was changed or added to the system before this starting happening. The stick problem doesn't occur at all times but does happen often enough. It is especially bothersome when playing L4D as I cannot use any automatic weapon without fear of friendly fire or if I am trying to highlight and paste, the first click doesn't always stop the highlighting. Anyone seen this before? i have combed many sites and searches but have found nothing that matches mine which I find hard to believe so am opening it up to the floor.

    Guess you didn't read that it is the same problem with 2 differednt mice or else you wouldn't have left such a repyl as you did unless you were hoping to look benal.

    Are these USB Mice or PS2 Mice? And is the Computer the one in your computer specs?

    The only time I've seen this it was due to a mechanical problem, i.e., a liquid spill. I was able to disassemble and clean it, but it seems odd it would happen with two mice.

    dustyjay: Both USB, one wirless one wired.
    hughv: not mechanical but have wondered if there is some driver amiss. anyone think of a driver that might get corrupted and cause this to happen.
