Mouse double-clicks when you try to single-click

I use a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer Optical Mouse, whose single-click is seen by Windows as a double-click. After trying out various recommendations in the knowledge base article, Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 266738 � IntelliMouse: Mouse Double-Clicks When You Try to Single-Click, I finally resorted to Daniel Jackson’s MouseFix utility. So far the fix has worked well, but maybe it’s time to upgrade my mouse. Unfortunately Microsoft’s free hardware product replacement support doesn’t cover mice that are three years old.

  1. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

    I have been dealing with this problem for months (I am very lazy) and I never could figure out or find anything that worked but the MouseFix utility worked great!

  2. Glad you found it useful. The thanks should really go to Daniel Jackson who wrote the program. Anyways, I recently reformated my computer and had to use the utility again so I’m glad he still has it available online.
