    Hey guys,
    My external wireless mouse is not working properly.
    I'm on Windows 7, Acer Aspire, the software on my mouse is up to date.
    Only a few problems, but they are very strange.

    1) When i click with it anywhere in iTunes, it switches the song. It does not do this when I use my touchpad on my laptop.
    2) It seems that double-clicking capabilities are not working. I am unable to double-click to select a range of text. For example, double-clicking the browser address bar does not select anything. I am still able to double-click select text with my laptop touchpad. Also, I can not double-click to open files or folders.

    I tried uninstalling the mouse software and then connecting it again, updating the software, and restarting my computer and I still have the same problems.

    Any Ideas?

    Wow that was really weird.
    The 'forward' shortcut button on my mouse was stuck in, which caused all of these problems for some reason lol.

    Thanks!
