    Default MS (mighty mouse) rampage

    Hi Team,
    I have a Toshiba lap top C850/3005 running Windows 7 Pro 32 bit fully updated to 11am today (22/3/2017)

    I have been using a MS wireless mouse for some time but about 2 weeks ago the mouse started taking control of me.
    A single click frequently was double thus bringing a page in twice.
    A single click function often needed 2 clicks.
    The scroll wheel frequently transposed up for down and vice-versa.

    I cleaned the red led and lens and replaced the mouse pad with a new one without effect.
    I also put new batteries in these mice.
    So I changed back to my old corded mouse after cleaning the lens.
    I ran both mice in another laptop, an Asus A6Q VM without any failure.
    The dammed mouse still frustrates my uses on the Toshiba.

    I have run CCleaner, MS Essentials and Defrag.

    Does anyone have an solution to this dammed rodent please.
    Please do not tell me to upgrade to Win 10, I suspect this rat will jump ship.

    Have you tried starting the computer in safe mode to see if it still does it ?

    Could also be faulty drivers - you may need to go into the device manager, uninstall the mouse reboot and let it reload new drivers ( or software if there is any)

    The mouse was installed twice in the device manager for some reason.
    Have deleted one.
    Will wait and see if I need to delete other and re-install drivers as you advise.
    I will keep you upto date.
    Many thanks.

    I've given up on MS mice, they seem to have a limited lifespan. I've been using a Logitech mouse, seems good.

    Had a clean out the other day found I had six dead MS rodents.

    Got that right these 2 wireless ms crapolas are ready to crap out.

    As soon as the ones I brought on Ebay arrive (hopefully sometime this century). MS mice and keyboard meet the bin

    Well, I have deleted both now, powered off for 30 secs and re-booted and then attached the mouse.
    All "seems" to be working OK but the mouse driver has installed twice again !

    However, all seems to be working OK so will reply again if there is any change.
    Cheers to all.
