    I have a 3 year old Amazon Basic corded mouse. The last week or so, I have had to click 2-4 times to get the right click context menu to view. Occasionally, a right click on a link will be interpreted as a left click, and the link will load in the current browser window. THis is happening across different browsers.

    Before I buy a new one, I'd like to see if I can run it with better drivers. I have uninstalled the driver, rebooted, and then let windows reinstall teh driver, but the problem remains.

    I'm wondering if there are better drivers out there for mice. Probably a long shot, but it is worth asking. Apart from this problem, there really doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the mouse. When I ask Windows to update the driver, it says I already have the latest driver.

    Probably hardware failure. Go for a new mouse, a driver update is not going to do anything.

    Mouse button internal contacts wear out over time. As was stated, get a new mouse. Drivers won't change anything. Besides, mice today are dirt cheap.
