    Are you using one of the newer Macbooks with the glass touchpad? Maybe when you push your finger down to click you're actually moving your finger over to the button next to it right before the click is registered.

    Or maybe you've got some strange software installed that has altered the way the buttons work. Using anything to change how the windows look/function that may be doing this?

    Edit: ok your sig states a White MB, so never mind... although people don't always update their sigs.

    +1 on that. I do that once every couple months or so, along with using DiskWarrior and/or Drive Genius 2 to make sure everything is fine.

    You purchase them, But it's really unnecessary. It may even be repaired with a reboot.

    True, but I would rather feel safe than sorry, so I have copies lying around in case of an emergency. DiskWarrior is made by Alsoft and DG2 is made by Prosoft.
