    MOUSE CLICK TOO FAST, TOO SLOW???

    I hope I am not the only one with this problem. I have my mouse setting set
    to fast so that it will eliminate an accidental double clicks when all I want
    is a single click, but even that won't help. My mouse tends to go one step
    beyond where I want it to go, e.g. to click on the forward in the MS Picture
    Manager, it will skip over one photo just about everytime. I have never had
    this problem with Windows XP, only with Vista. Any solutions?

    just a guess but it sounds like your mouse is busted - it's clicking once
    when you press it and again when you release it - try a different mouse and
    see if it's the same

    That's a thought. *duh* ...why didn't I think of that. That would
    definitely be step one. Thanks!

    Set Windows to single-click to Open and hover to Select?

    Consider another mouse as the current one's particular design might not
    match you?

    Slow the mouse double-click speed so it will require a more deliberate
    double click?
