Default mouse doubleclicks when I single click

hey guys, I have a gateway optical mouse, model Moakuo (basic 2 button scrollwheel wired optical usb mouse) and recently it has started to double click on things when I single click, search bars, address bars, computer games, you name it, it'll double click it.

I have gone into settings and turned up my double click speed, and I have re-installed drivers, but so far it still double clicks!

any thing else that you think would be worth my efforts to try?

thanks in advance

Will it do this on any other system you have tried it on?

Saxon, that is a good idea, I will troubleshoot it tonight.

Alvin, I just checked to make sure, and it wasnt it good guess, but it isnt so much a folder thing, I always double click my folders/icons, and I have set the doubleclick setting to fastest in my mouse options, the thing is, it clicks faster then I could ever do, and im not sure if the problem is in the mouse or in the driver.... other then that I havent been playing with this computers settings, so its either an updated driver, a windows automatic update goof-up, or simply old (only 1 year though) technology screwing up.

My mouse double clicks a of the time as well. Some one once told me it was a bug or something like that with Vista. Once I went back to XP it still happens on occasion. But not nearly as much as before.
