edit: lol tinatamad ako kalikutin since it's late kaya i decided to google if someone solved this with just a simple windows based fix and it appears someone did (pang ibang brand nga lang). Tried it (Windows 7) and looks like everything's back to normal. I didn't even need to fix the hardware na haha. Sana tumagal to
This is a small utility program I wrote to correct a problem that is experienced by some users of the Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer Optical Mouse, whose devices have defective microswitches under the buttons causing a single-click to be seen by Windows as a double-click (seemingly not "debounced" properly).
Contrary to Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 266738 — IntelliMouse: Mouse Double-Clicks When You Try to Single-Click — this problem is most likely to be caused by faulty hardware. However, I couldn't be bothered sending my mouse back, so I wrote a software solution to the problem.
For my mouse, the problem seems to be that the switch isn't "debounced" when you release the button — i.e. when you release it, it actually clicks again. Basically, the program intercepts "up" events for the left mouse button, and ignores any subsequent "up" events that follow within a very small time.
Download the utility:
Download MouseFix utility (Windows NT/2000/XP only)
<click here for link>
Unzip, and place the files in C:\Program Files\MouseFix.
Create a shortcut to MouseFix.exe and place it in the Startup folder of the Start menu.
Log off and back on again — your mouse should no longer double-click by accident!
If you manually run the executable, only run it once — you will not see anything to indicate the utility is running, but you should be able to locate the MouseFix.exe item in TaskManager (you can exit the utility by ending the task).
HTH those with similar 2click problems
NOTE: This will also disable the autofire feature
