i have win8 and double clicking works fine after entering my computer. However, on the desktop when i double click any icon it doesn't open until the third click. i tried removing the domain user from profiles but the problem returned after running the programs i have. i thought it could be related to avcast or babylon so i uninstalled babylon and prevented avast from starting but the problem persists. i am suspecting it could be because of bwmeter which installs a network driver but what has the mouse driver to do with it? any ideas?

It could be the default Double Click Speed.

Go to Control Panel - Mouse - Buttons tab and play around with the Double Click Speed.

This could also be a hardware issue so the above may not work. You could also try re-installing the drivers for the mouse you are using.

i tried moving the speed to the far right and the far left and the same problem and it isn't a hardware problem as after entering my computer everything clicks great – Majed Sep 11 '13 at 18:42
It's probably a driver problem then. What mouse are you using? – Yass Sep 11 '13 at 18:44
logitech mouse . – Majed Sep 11 '13 at 18:48
and on the other domain users on this computer there is no problem – Majed Sep 11 '13 at 18:48
It might be a program on just your account causing this. Did the problem begin after installing BWMeter? – Yass Sep 11 '13 at 18:51

The problem was with Yandex's Punto Switch which automatically switches languages when it detects which language you are typing with.

Up to now they haven't fixed the problem.
