Mouse will open Multiple things whenever I click once

Whenever I click once on something like mozillia It will open it 4 or so times. Once I had it open terminal over a 100 times. Do I have a virus or is it a software issue? It might just be because i have a cheap mouse. It is really annoying and I am thinking about reinstalling linux.

Doubt it is a virus. HAs it always done this or just started say after uprgading something?
I would go out get a another mouse or borrows a friends and see if the problem persist.

Hope this helps

I went over to windoze and the problem went away. This is newer problem that just arrived after I installed quake 3.
