    Unhappy curser acting abnormal

    For no apparent reason my curser no longer requires a click or double click to open anew file. I place the curser on the subject and within moments, either the arrow or the hand flashes red and the document opens without my having to clickthe curser. Also when typing I must leave the curser in the box where the typing occures or I cannot type further. I have gone to system settings and I believe the mouse settings are correct. Could this be caused by some type of virus? This sissue is most annoying!

    Check under System Settings>System>Universal Access>Pointing and Clicking - there's an option to hover-cllick.

    Thank you for your reply -- I found it and turned hover-click off
