    I've been having some problems with my mouse (Intellimouse Explorer 3.0) as sometimes a single click of the left button is treated as two clicks. I know the problem is with the electronics in the mouse because I get this problem on other computers too.

    When I was using Windows I was able to detect accidental double clicks with TweakUI. If a second click was detected within a certain amount of time it would be ignored.

    Is there any tool for OS X that would do the same thing? Otherwise I may have to buy another Explorer 3.0. I'm on my 3rd one now (first one after it was re-introduced a few years back).

    You could try decreasing/increasing the double-click speed in system preferences.

    So, I don't get it - this particular mouse keeps giving you problems and you keep buying them. I have a logitech MX Laser and it's been great.

    I have the same problem with my Logitech wireless mouse and usually it's a sign that the batteries are about to go. Change the batteries and the problem pretty much goes away.

    I've been using an Apple Pro Mouse for years, they're brilliant!
