I am looking for a mouse that has an adjustment to change the resistance to a click.  I being old and "heavy handed" tend to press the right click button each time I click the left button.

Needless to say, this causes havoc in what I am trying to do.  

I have dissable the right button nw and moved it's function to the scroll wheel button..  But, I would rather have a normal mouse with buttons that are harder to push.

Thanks for your help/ideas..

G'day jpb36,

I totally understand your situation.

There are a few alternatives to the standard mouse when it comes to moving an arrow around your computer screeen....

The Micropoint (http://www.zygo-usa.com/mpoint.html) is a similar concept to a Laptop pointer

Have you considered a Trackball device (http://us.kensington.com/html/1436.html) which are very functional and easy to use

Even a device create for the disabled can be a great product, have a look here.... (http://www.adapt-it.org.uk/products/default.asp)

Hope this helps,

Ian
