strange 'alt' fault

  dfubar 19:22 12 Oct 05

Has anyone ever happened upon this problem, that when trying to open a folder on the desktop, a double-click opens the properties instead of the window. This also happens when browsing, instead of following a link, it'll either do nothing or open the 'save as' dialog or similar. If we press 'alt', however, then everything works as normal. It might do this once an hour, or 10 times in 5 minutes?

Anyone got any idead what is causing this?

I am running windows xp (SP2+all patches)

Could be a faulty mouse.
