Starting three or four days ago, and for no known reason, I had the same problem: I'd do a single click to delete one E-mail and it and the next one or two was/were also deleted. Changing mouse double-click settings -- to very fast or very slow -- did not help.

Yesterday, I went to Control Panel / Folder Options / General and replaced Double Click with Single Click, and now the problem is gone!

I do not know why what I did worked, or if it worked. The problem correction may not be caused by what I did.

My favorite example of incorrect reasoning is: "Things expand in the heat. That is why days are longer in the Summer!"

I'd like to learn whether trying this correct's Thom T's problem.

Thanks for your suggestion. You are the 2nd person to suggest this action to me.

The problem I had was: Control Panel must be in "Classic View" for this to work. When Control Panel is NOT in "Classic View" there IS NO FOLDER to browse.
(I looked high and low for this "folder" to no avail.)

It crossed my mind to change BACK to Classic View
and majically there was the "Folder" you so highly suggested.

And YES, switching to SINGLE Click seems to have corrected the overactive mouse problem completely.

Thanks again,

Thom T

After changing from Single click, (as instructed) and back to double click, and back to single click, my mouse responce continued to be TOO FAST. I unplugged and reinstalled the mouse. I also updated my mouse drivers, to no avail. Nothing changed.

I have (hopefully) solved the problem by using an OLDER mouse (with a ball). A single click gets the correct response.
A double click gets the correct response. No workaround is needed. It simply works.

I will purchase a new mouse in the near future.
