    Today I noticed that when I select text it automatically deselects just after I select it. Then in Outlook I clicked on an email ONE time and the entire email opened in a new window. I know you can only open an email in a new window if you double click.

    Both the selecting text and email problem only happen if I try to click a few times in a row.

    This mouse is only a few months old.

    I have Windows Vista Home Premium.

    I find this very strange as this just started happening today.

    Thanks.

    What kind of mouse is it? I had the same problem with a Labtech optical. My technical son told me it was and internal hardware problem and there was no way to fix it. - But that was just the Labtech, before you trash it!

    Check it control panel for mouse properties and see if it set as right handed or left. that will swap the buttons. After that try another mouse that one may be defective.

    That's exactly the mouse I have. A Labtec Optical Mouse 800.

    Thank you so much for your reply. I will replace the mouse. :)(y)

    I looked in control panel and the mouse is still set to right hand. Thanks for your reply.
