    Hey OT,

    My left mouse button has been acting wierd for a few days. It either doesn't do anything after I click or it act as a double click with just one click. I took off the PS2 adapter and connected the mouse straight to USB but it still has the same problems. I also tried changing the double click speed in Control panel but the problem still occurs. I just wanted to know if there was anything I could do before I have to buy a new mouse. This is the mouse i have btw:

    Yeah, i was thinking that was a possibility but I'm confused on how to remove the mouse button? Do you know how I could do that? Thanks for your input though.

    You are best off replacing the mouse...

    As far as I know you can't take a mouse button off, if you really want to salvage it either rapidly click it (computer off) or combine clicking with soft lifting (flat head screw driver).

    Next time look for mice with screws - Logitech uses screws so you can open them up farily easily. The MS mice we have here are all glued shut :rant2:

    There are screws, they are under the mouse feet the little pads on the bottom of the mouse.
