Try Control Panel and click on mouse.Double click speed set it to the middle only if it is already set to high.Apply Ok.

Mine is set to one notch passed the middle.

He doesn't need to single click should open it.Not unless that does not work either.

I meant the double click settings to put the slider into the middle.

Normally the double click is on the left I was just wondering if it could now be on the right maybe the settings were changed.

Assuming you have burned your Kaspersky Rescue Disc from the ISO download, scroll down to Step 4 and follow the instructions (Read through them first or Print them so that you can follow them step by step)
