The double left click action has stopped working on windows 7. If I double click on a file  it acts as if I have done 2 slow clicks and thinks i want to rename the file. This happens no matter how fast I click on the file. It happens on all files and folders. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Agree on checking the mouse. What you describe does not happen to me (Windows 7 Pro 64-bit with regular mouse (old, old Microsoft wired wheel mouse), Trackpoint, and LogiTech Nano wireless mouse. ... Thinkpads_User
