I have got this weird problem with my laptop. Whenever i select any item on the desktop or any folder, all the other items before that selected item gets automatically selected. Its the same for any selection whether it be mails in outlook, files in folder etc.. Sometimes when i open a folder, first item of that folder gets highlited i.e. like if i am trying to change its name.

I have even changed the mouse and it works fine for a while but then its the same.

It can't be any virus nor spyware as i already have Trend Micro installed.


Thanks

My experience may resolve yours ?
Press the Ctrl and click left mouse key couple times on desktop. Then it may back normally.

Good luck.

lol ok this is actually quite a funny problem but wat i found was my shift key was sticking, so it was highlighting everything before the item i selected. check your shift buttons to see if they're broken or sticking. Peace

I registered just to say I had the same sad experience some seconds ago: I looked my shift key happily sticking and realized it was the heart of the matter.
