Since yesterday when I single click on an item it opens the item instead of selecting it. This is affecting Excel, e-mail, everything. I've already gone to; Start>folder options>General. I have tried to restore the defaults and have chosen double click to open and item/single to select and applied this setting (even though it was already selected). I continue to have the problem. I've also already tried a different mouse.
