once click setup on a laptop

Hello,

I just brought a laptop, and I am having a problem of how it's mouse pointer is set up.  I believe this is setup through windows but not sure where.  

Scenerio:
When a mouse hovers over an icon, it automatically highlights it.  One click would activate the icon, no matter if its a file, folder, or executable.

How do I change it to default meaning, to highlight an icon would be to click on it once, and to execute that icon would be to double click it.

I have a Sony PCG-R505.  Thanks.

sarniscool, I just wanted to point out that it will help out greatly if you post what Operating System you are using. This queation didn't specifically require that information, but sometimes this makes a big difference.
