Specs: Windows 10, 4 gb
I have been using this mouse for the past 4+ years. Never had any problems with it. It is hooked in a USB port of my Acer -- Aspire laptop.

Lately, LEFT CLICK BUTTON (LCB) DOES'T RESPOND AS IT USED TO! I have to click LCB at least 4-5 times and wait for about 30 to 45 seconds in order to get RIGHT RESPONSE from it. I'm confused and get irritated sometimes because I don't know What is Wrong w/this mouse.

Can someone write me COMMON REASONS for such behavior of a mouse? Please reply me, how to fix above problem.

✔ Best Answer
If the problem is with the mouse and not malware or other software running on the laptop then the quickest fix is to buy a new mouse. If it's not the mouse but software related the easiest way to verify that is to. . . buy a new mouse.

Or likely the mouse has screws holding it together on the bottom. (They may be hidden under the mouse feet--is that the right term?--that allows the mouse to glide over the mouse pad.) You could remove those and try cleaning it out with compressed air. It's also possible the internal 'clicker' is worn out.

I had a Logitech optical mouse that I really liked and used for
many years. Eventually the left button became unreliable.
I could never tell whether it would work or not. I opened it up
and saw that the plastic part that pushes on the microswitch
was barely making contact with the microswitch. I superglued
a tiny little piece of electrical wire to the plastic so that it was
thick enough to press down fully on the microswitch, and got
several more years use out of the mouse. Eventually the
plastic insulation on the bit of wire wore down, so that I'll need
to repeat the repair if I want to use that mouse again.

But in the meantime, I bought a new mouse.

If the same problem exists when using the laptop's touchpad buttons, you have an infection.

If you confirm that it is actually the mouse, just purchase a new one. They are not very expensive and once replaced you can use your computer with confidence again which is important.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
