Hi. My Macbook is currently clicking on everything. I would try to go click on something, then all the words on the screen would become highlighted in Blue. Also, while typing i will often find it to suddenly become highlighted in Blue then with the next letter click i will loose everything i was typing. This problem used to happen at the starting after i restarted by computer for like a minute, but now it is Non-stop. Also, i feel the thing that you click on to Click is down too far but it won't come back up. How should i fix this Problem?:confused:

A similar thing happened to a friend of mine. He had a unibody Macbook with a user removable battery which expanded and pressed up against the bottom of the trackpad making clicking almost impossible or an unstoppable constant click.

are you under applecare? it might be a defect take it in and ask if they can repair it for free, or how much it would be. Sounds like the trackpad and keyboard are malfunctioning.

Classic case of the battery expanding.

Get it to an Apple store if there is still warranty on the machine.
Otherwise, remove the bottom cover and take a look at the battery - is it swollen like a stuffed pig?
If so, there's your problem.
