I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello
 
I just cleaned underneath the keys of my inspiron 1525 laptop because my stepchildren enjoyed getting sticky substances underneath the keys and I wanted my wife to have better functionality.  I didn't pull up all the keys and used alcohol, pipe-cleaners and q-tips to clean.  After letting it dry a while, I started it up and everything seemed to work fine.  Then I noticed that when I double-clicked on desktop icons, it displayed the 'properties' menu instead of opening.
 
I figured the ALT key was stuck so I took it off and examined it.  It appeared fine but no matter what I seem to do, this continues.  I've tried to follow some online instructions to disable hotkeys but it still continues.  I assumed it was the ALT key but perhaps I'm mistaken. 
 
Any advice and/or methodology would be greatly appreciated.
 
Whoa!  It's worse than I thought!  I went onto a browser and apparently I can't type at all!  What the hell?  The keyboard reacts but not by typing letters, it's as if it's all hotkeys now!
 
ARRRRGH!
 
Help . . . please . . . ?
 
Tried restarting in safe mode and problem persists.  Only thing I can figure is that one or more of the keys are jammed.  Wish I could figure out which one.  Otherwise, I'll have to take off half the damn keyboard.  It doesn't SEEM to be the ALT key since I can still do CRTL-ALT-DEL and bring up the task manager.  Anyone hav...

I have an Acrox (model MOP) laser mouse and no matter WHAT I set my mouse options to (right now at slowest possible double click setting) whenever I click the left button, I will almost always end up getting a double click. I will excute files when trying to move them, open pictures when trying to delete,.......you get the picture. I checked their website......but I can't figure out how to actually INSTALL the drivers. I've done tons of drivers, but these ones get me. Anybody have any ideas.......it is REALLY aggravating trying to save when the dropdown menu is opened and closed with one click of the mouse.....takes like 4 tries before the menu will open properly and let me choose a location. AAARRRGHH !!
 

A:Constantly getting a double click with Acrox laser mouse

Well, regardless of the speed of the double click, if the button is set to double click it will always double click.

Anyway, go to this Acrox site (Click here), download the driver zip file. When you unzip this file, you'll find more zipped files. Select the one for your model and unzip it. Double click on the setup.exe file or open it from Start > Run. It should install then.

Hi,

Forgive me if my searches weren't up to speed to find the answer to this... I tried, I really did.

I just had to get a new system and it has Windows 7 Pro - X64. Now it seems like a double click in a window header bar, all windows, end up with a full screen window. Driving me nuts! (short trip )

I've searched all over and can only find the doc. on disabling the full screen snap when moving a window off screen or to the top.

Any idea how to disable the bar-double click behavior?

Thanks, and again I apologize if my search was crud.

A:Disable Windows double click = full screen window?

Double-clicking the title bar to maximize a window has been a behavior since at least Windows 95. I think it cannot be disabled. You may need to change your approach.

Hey there, any help is much appreciated

After a lot of headache, ive realised that updating anything through windows update that requires a restart causes my computer screen to go black after the windows loading bar on startup. If i leave the computer for about 10 minutes it eventually opens the login screen and works as normal until i restart it again.

I can fix the problem by putting my windows disk in and doing a system restore, but i want to fix the problem properly!, i would like to be able to update.

i have done a myriad of things to clean the computer including registry cleaning, optimising startup list, physically cleaning dust out of the box and fans etc as initialy i thought it was a hardware problem before i noticed it was windows update causing it.

thanks in advance for any help,

I have a Touch Smart All-in-one PC H110 that I just bought about 2 weeks ago.  This was manufactured a while ago, but I just got it with a solid-state hard drive.  I think that the touch screen worked properly when I first tried it.  I have loaded up all of my programs and now the touch screen works with a single touch and hold, but I cannot get any double-click action using the test program.  I uninstalled the HID compliant touch screen from the device manager menus and then rebooted to restore it but the problem remains.  I think that the Microsoft driver 10.0.14393.351 dated 6/21/2006 is the latest driver, but I am not sure of that.  The computer works fine except for this problem.  How can I be sure that my driver is not corrupted?Microsoft has a "Refresh" function available from a rescue bootable USB drive, but that will remove all of my programs and I am not sure if it will replace the driver. Can anyone suggest a way to know that the driver is being replaced with a good version?  If I have to use the Refresh program does that insure that I will get a new driver? I notice that there is a new UEFI boot for this PC dated October, 2016?  I doubt that a UEFI update will solve the problem so have not done it. Can anyone help me with suggestions as to how to solve this touch screen problem.Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.David

Hi,
I have a couple of problems with my Thinkpad T500. I hope, I'm in the right section.
When I start Windows, the screen just goes blank after the animated Windows logo when the login-screen should normally be appearing. The hdd light keeps flashing but nothing happens no matter how long I wait.
Furthermore when I start Windows in Safe Mode the left-click isn't working with trackpoint and touchpad. It is however working when I use a usb mouse.
Now before this happened I had installed a freeware (grooveshark downloader) which installed a bunch of adware along with it which I removed with malwarebytes and avast browser clean-up. I noticed that the volume control buttons didn't work correctly (all three were only muting and unmuting instead of in- or decreasing volume).
Also even before all this the on-screen prompots weren't appearing whenever I changed volume or screen brightness.
The last thing I did was install Windows-Update which might have involved Lenovo UltraNav and Display drivers (not entirely sure).
I don't really know what to do now. I'm doing a full malwarebytes-scan in safe mode now - nothing found yet.
What can I do? Thanks

Okay, good news: The laptop has switchable graphics and I always have the graphics card disabled because I don't need it and use the integrated Intel. I activated the ATI card in safe mode and now I can start Windows normally. However it won't let me switch graphics anymore so there seems to be something wrong with the integrated Intel which is weird since the CPU is working fine.
Also the sound button issue (all three (un)muting) still exists and left-click with touchpad or ultranav still doesn't work... Any ideas?

I'm running XP Pro and for the last 2 months something has changed on shutdown. I open Start , Turn Off Computer, Turn Off and perform my normal one click but other than a whirring nose in the tower and the green light coming on momentarily on the floppy drive nothing happens. I have to go back and repeat the proceedure one more time for shutdown.

This also happens when installing a program and the window appears saying that it needs to reboot to install...when I click OK nothing happens. I have to go to Start, Turn Off Computer, and click on Restart.

I have also noticed that when my browser opens and I click on the dropdown menu for the stored URLs and it won't open on the first click, it flashes momentarily but it takes the second click to view. This only happens initially from then on the menu drops down on and subsequent single clicks work. The problem seems to have started around the time I started using Firefox as my browser.

using the keyboard to copy hangs and then once the computer "unfreezes" copy/paste with keyboard works fine
double clicking on a file that would launch a program hangs for a while then opens the program.
using the delete key hangs
Otherwise performance is normal everything runs fine while using all programs.

What I have tried so far:
Running Adaware and AVG to determine if spyware/malware installed
using shellview to disable processes - no results

Correct. "Folder Options" refers to Windows Explorer. The "folders" within a program, like WLM, are under the control of the program. However I noticed that my version of WLM (2009) behaves the way you want without the "Reading" pane turned on. If I turn it on then a single click shows the email in the reading pane. If I turn it off, it takes a double click to open the email to view it. The reading pane is controlled via the "Layout" Viewing option.

What I mean is that let's say I am trying to hold and drag a desktop file it will sometimes just click, making me drop the file on the spot. It will also double click when I try to make a single click. I tried to lower the settings for double click timing on the settings menu.

EDIT: Tried out another mouse, it doesn't click out of nowhere but is there a way to fix my old mouse? I can switch the buttons so right click acts as left click so it seems that specific button got practically destroyed

A:Mouse double clicks when I click once and click when I hold it.

Do you mean the other mouse works fine? As far as I know there's no way to fix a mouse other than making sure the trackball or optical lens is clean, whichever your has.

A repair would cost more than a new mouse I suspect. You can get an ordinary one for about $5 or so.

Hello all, from a few days until now I have started experiencing what seems to be a recurrent problem in the P50 laptop touchpad drivers. When using the driver 19.3.4.16 for synaptics pointing device, the left button of the touchpad double clicks most of the times (about 70-80% of the time). If I decide to update my drivers to the latest version, 19.3.4.202, then something even worse happens: the left and right buttons are inverted (and I have checked that the box of inverting the buttons in control panel is unclicked). From what I have been reading this has been an issue that has happened before already, but I don't know if Lenovo fixed it, or it has just been unsolved until now. Maybe someone around here can help me with this?

Hello,

I came up to a problem that I cannot solve. Using the Explorer (not IE but the plain explorer to organize folders and files) I cannot change the behaviour of an Active Desktop like in WinXP or others.

I am very used to this procedure: single click = mark an object / doubleclick = execute an object.

Unfortunately, the Explorer just uses the option single click = execute. I remembered the option in XP/Vista, that you can go to Extras -> folder options -> Select Elements and tick a radio button for the Active Desktop method or the classic method (execute via doubleclick). Just as described in the tutorial "Single-Click or Double-Click to Open an Item" within this forum.

I tried this, and now I'm getting nuts: The radio button is already put on the classic mode (execute by doubleclick, select by single click). The other option is grey, i.e. it cannot be selected.

I guess, there's some tick wrong in the registry or else, but I cannot find out which. Does anyone has an idea what can be done?

A:folder options / single-click or double-click

The checkbox/radio button option is under the View tab in the same dialog.

A:Solved: Single click makes double click

If it happens everytime, there is a setting in windows, but if it's only sometimes, it might be time for a new mouse.

Just a goofy phenomena that seems to be puzzling me. Each time I single click on a desktop icon, it acts like it was double clicked and opens the file/program. When single clicking on a scroll-bar to the right of a window, it acts like it was double clicked, traveling much further down the screen than expected.

I'm using Windows ME. My mouse is an IBM Scrollpoint II, 3-button mouse with a small scroll pivot-lever. Any assistance to solve this problem will be appreciated. Thanks.
 

A:Single mouse click acts like a double-click

Hi there Amaul,

One thing to check is go into the 'mouse properties' in the 'Control Panel' and under the 'Buttons' tab there will be an option for 'Files and Folders'. Make sure the 'double-click to open an item' is selected.

Hope this helps.

It's taking over a minute for a file to open or for the box to appear after I right click. It just hangs with the hourglass cursor until it finally responds. I know this isn't normal. So what's causing it?

Anyone, anyone,

Info on my PC is below. In many windows such as those opened within Internet Explorer, a right mouse click on the right-hand scroll bar acts like a double click, making the scroll go down much further than wanted. It used to be that a single click on the empty area of the bar would make the screen go down only one screen height. It now goes down two. Please help as this is irritating.

Recently (in the last month) my computer has started giving me a double click on a single click of the left button.  This is very irritating.
It does this with both, a USB Logitech Track Man Wheel and with a wireless HID mouse.
I have tried adjusting the settings for the mouse but that doesn't seem to have any effect.
I have AVAST antivirus.  I have run Microsoft Security Essentials, Malewarebytes Anti-Malware, Spybot search and destroy, Super Anti-Spyware and Junkware Removal Tool.
I have updated all of my drivers and used Drive Booster 3.
When I click to close a window on Firefox it will double click and minimize the browser.
This problem is active in all of my programs that I run, not just the browser.
I have Windows Vista, 64 Bit on a Dell Inspiron laptop.
Does anyone have any suggestions.
I think this has to be a software problem, but I don't know how to correct it or which software is involved..
Thank you
 

A:Mouse will double click on single click of button

Personally I think your problem is an overused mouse. I used to have a mouse that does that, but the problem disappeared when it was swapped for another mouse.Have you tried another mouse to rule out the mouse itself?

I have a strange problem that has been occurring since I very first installed Windows 7 x64 fresh. Whenever I click on the primary C drive in Explorer (or any other CD, card reader, or network mapped drive), sometimes 1 new window will open up, sometimes 2 new windows will open up, and sometimes 3 new windows will open up. The new windows usually, but not always, have an address bar. Explorer just seems to randomly open multiple windows at will.

I've been searching and searching online, trying various Tools->Folder Options as well as registry settings, but nothing seems to work. All I've found is a couple other forum posts with the same problem (random amount of multiple windows opening), but no resolutions.

This doesn't happen on any of my other Windows 7 x64 computers. The main difference I can think of is that this is the only machine I have with an SSD, but I can't see how that would effect all drives in Explorer.

Does anyone have any ideas what I can do to fix this? I would like no new windows at all to open up.

A:Explorer opens multiple windows when I double click a drive

Go to Control Panel - Mouse properties. Reduce the Mouse Double Click Speed and check. This could be one of the problem.
