EdmondClay,

Mice are fairly cheap.  I prefer a non-ball type of mouse.  I prefer optical wheel mice.  I have a Logitech Optical wheel mouse and it works great.

try restarting your computer in safe mode and remove everythin g under mice in the device manager.  Restart and reinstall your mouse drivers.  Also, have you recenly scanned for viruses?

Eye-catchers on the conference table

Challenge: The i-unit group was not satisfied with the audio quality during remote meetings. They were looking for a portable solution with excellent audio quality for use in their conference room but also at their client’s offices.

Windows product yes!  However, I changed to a compaq ball mouse and the click and drag problem is gone.  Don't like the hard click but at least i am not click/drag in hypomode.  I suppose that it is a faulty mouse/ball.  I am looking into the purchase of a Logitech 2x cordless mouse on eBay.   looks promising.  Thanks for the advice.

Cool,

Glad to hear that. If this has solved your problem, I would suggest closing and grading the question.  However if you do need more help let us know!  I'll be glad to help in any way that I can!

The solution to get a new mouse was evident.  What mouse to get was not and I appreciate the advice to upgrade to a different style.  The follow-up response was thoughtful.  Thanks again.

You did and I'm pursuing it...  The evidence was clear before i asked the question.  I use the mouse a lot in gaming (UnReal) and i suppose i just wore it out...
