Problems selecting and clicking.

It doesn't matter whether I use Yahoo Mail, Thunderbird, or Word. I have trouble selecting. I highlight the text, but when I release the mouse button it unhighlights again.
When I have a checkbox to select I have a hard time selecting it. It checks, the immediately unchecks. Its hard to describe.
(Right now I'm getting stuff selected when I don't want it selected!)
Any ideas out there?
Thank you.

Excuse the obvious but you have tried another Mouse?

So I guess the consensus is that it is the mouse?
Thank you.

No,have you tried another though?

IF you have a Full XP disc if thats what you are running run System File checker, by typing in the run box

SFC /SCANNOW

just as it is above with XP cd in drive.

Alternative is run Restore back dated to when it was ok

Have to agree with eedcam and tullie, first actions should be to check with a different mouse, also check that the mouse drivers are up to date then report back.

You called it right! I borrowed my mouse from work and sure enough, everything worked fine.
Thanks for the help.
