    Mouse/Windows Explorer Behaving Erratically


    I am about to go crazy with mouse issues. The problems are single clicks randomly trigger double clicks which sometimes causes windows explorer to momentarily freeze for a few seconds until it rights itself. Also occasionally a mouse click and the release will drag content as though the mouse is depressed. I have tried 3 different mice, 2 wireless 1 not (my main/favorite). I have uninstalled drivers, reinstalled drivers, I have run virus and malware scans with 3 different programs, Malwarebytes, Bitdefender and Spybot Search and Destroy. I have adjusted mouse click sensitivity settings. As I am typing this my keyboard for the first time momentarily became unresponsive!!! I am close to slinging a bat into the whole system! This is crazy, please help!!!! How do I uninstall a Microsoft Windows "wrap-up" update? I think the problem may have stated after I installed that. I know there is a newer version of Windows 10 but I have expensive hardware that has released info saying do not go past my current version because there have been problems reported by people who do.

    :)

  3. Mouse behaves erratically after update

    After the last update my mouse behaves erratically. It
    also generates error sound when I am playing 3D games. I did a clean reinstall of video card driver, plugged the mouse in another USB port and reinstalled mouse drivers. I use Basic Logitech USB
    mouse and Nvidia Geforce 1070 video card driver

    Razer Taipan mouse pointer moving erratically after Windows 10 update

    I'm using the Razer Taipan mouse. The mouse pointer has been moving erratically since the last Windows 10 update a few days.

    Yesterday I called Razer support. They had me uninstall the software and also delete the mouse from the list of hardware in the control panel. Then I restarted my computer and reinstalled the software. That worked for all of yesterday. This morning the mouse
    pointer is moving erratically again.

    I've followed the procedure from yesterday of uninstalling the software, removing the mouse from the list of hardware in the control panel, restarting the computer and reinstalling the software. This time it has not solved the problem.

    Any suggestions?
