Mouse click and dragging on it's own?

Postby suretytn on Sun Oct 28, 2012 9:33 am

After I ran updates today the mouse is constantly (two button USB mouse) clicking and dragging everything. I thought it was a Firefox problem but it is also happening to applications running on the task bar, it will pick them up when i attempt to single click or just mouse over them.

Anyone else experiencing this? I haven't been able to test the mouse but it's odd it worked fine until I ran the available updates.

What brand and model mouse is it? Especially some of the fancier gaming mice, that have non-standard features, are known to cause problems.

LED mice work best on a plain white surface.
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
