Double click


My mouse is really starting to get on my nervs. 50% of the time it double-clicks when I just do a single click. I thought that maby increase the time for double-click would do it but I don't know how to change that. So my first question is that: how do I change the double-click-speed?

But I am not really sure that that's the problem, cause I am sometimes pretty sure that I don't click two times. What can the problem be? It's pretty annoying sometimes.

It sounds to me like a hardward fault. I had the same problem on both systems on a dual bool (win/lin) machine, so I figured it must be something to do with the mouse itself, not the software. I just replaced the mouse, and everything worked fine.
