    When I double click on an icon on the desktop OR in a dialog box, multiple
    icons are randomly selected (they are all highlighted). If I proceed ALL the
    programs are opened. The only way I can stop this happening is to right click
    on an icon and select 'Open'. Please help.

    Scan the system for malware and/or connect a different mouse since
    Windows does not show that behavior by default.

    The problem *might* be resolved after replacing the batteries.
