Specs: Windows 7
This is NOT a virus but FLAW in the Mouse control design.
I ofter will be typing and of coarse my mouse is in front of my keyboard ready to use if I need it. BUT while typing I move my hands back and forth and occationally I will hit my mouse moving it a little. I do not notice (because I am thinking about what I want to type) that this action causes the mouse to highlight text so when I keep typing and all that highted text gets earased/replaced. This has infuriated me to no end and want to throw my mouse out the window. (I did smash it one time) I f move my mouse away from the keyboard it is very inconveiniant when I do wan to tuse it for a quick mouse click.
MY solution is that the mouse should require a right mouse click BEFORE it can interact with the keyboard typing. Is there something I can do to make this happens before it drives me crazy and I destroy more mices. LOL

Generally, if you're right handed, the mouse should be to the right of the keyboard; if you're left handed, it should be to the left. If you're placing the mouse in front of the keyboard (between you & the keyboard?) meaning you have to reach over it while you type, then the problem is your odd-ball choice of placement. Not only does it affect your typing, but it's bad ergonomically.

There are also numerous keyboard shortcuts that can be used that prevent the need to click the mouse.

I've been on these boards since mid 1999 and never known anyone complaining about this before.
I think it is a matter of finding a better position of the mouse in relation to the keyboard.
EDIT: Either that or get a mouse with a different height/profile or sensitivity.

Did smashing the mouse help in some way?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Computer mice are not expensive so simply try/buy a different mouse, maybe something optical or laser and not the cheapest available and not very expensive either, just comfortably in between. Try them if possible or purchase where you can return if it turns out it is not good for you. Some stores may let you plug it into a computer or laptop that they have running on their display.

Actually, it does require a left or right click before interacting. Your post makes no sense at all, simply moving the mouse isn't going to move the cursor.

If the mouse is the type that has the entire side as the button and is sensitive then possibly nudging it might click at the same time and highlight text. A little far fetched but remotely possible.
This is why I said just purchase a new better mouse.
