Mouse issues

Hi there!

I've recently encountered some problems with my mouse. When I left-click, he often acts as if I've right-clicked. Furthermore the computer often acts as if I'm dragging my cursor somewhere (as if I'm keeping it clicked). My computer runs on Windows 10. I tried using another mouse or another USB-port, but it didn't work.

Often or always?

have a wireless mouse used on this too?

Or someone who likes to play pranks? Check for a small "button" type of device in a USB slot. Common office trick is to plug such in a cubicle mate's computer and then once in a while moving the wireless mouse to watch the consternation of the other at having his mouse move on it's own.

Thanks for your suggestions. I did all these things, but it didn't really help. The problem occurs often, but not all the time indeed. I never used a wireless mouse on this PC either, so I've got no clue why these issues persist..
