    Thank you cbwilsha! I searched for control panel, and found the control panel that they hid so well in windows 10. I did have the double click selected, but it made it so easy for me to find all the other parts of control. I totally dislike that you have to search for the control panel to get to what you really need to fine tune your computer. I will get back in a couple days to let you all know what I find. Life will keep me from the computer for a couple days.

    ok, this is what I have found. I believe it is a bug in Windows 10 since it didn't do it at first with the upgrade. In the smart gesture section of control panel. I turned everything off except scroll and zoom. I have not had any issues since. Now, the reason I didn't think it was this is because your fingers didn't have to be touching the pad for the mouse to auto click! All it had to do was hover for like one second and it opened whatever. I will mark this as solved once I verify this truly is a fix. Now I get to start another thread because my network adapter is suddenly going crazy and I have to be hardwired sometimes to get to internet.

    Sorry in delay getting back to you all on this. I found the culprit. It was in the smart gesture. Anything under the one finger headline, I turned off. It seems the pad is so sensitive that it must have been clicking as I was moving my finger off. Thank you all.

    My computer was really acting weird on firefox my mouse was bouncing all over the place. I tried the private window of firefox this worked my mouse stopped the bouncing. Next I realized it was not the mouse but the companies that track pages. I found on firefox a addon called blur that stops companies from tracking my mouse is not acting weird anymore. hope this helps

    Double click is already set. All I do is hover over things and they open up. I believe that it is simply a revenue grasping policy when you open up advertisements. It is sending me potty.

    I have found a possible solution on another forum, you turn off the tapping option in the mouse pad options.

    No one else is having this issue? The option of make is easy to use mouse is not there in Windows 10. I don't have the pro version, I have whatever they updated me to from windows 8. I now hate using the computer because of this mouse issue.
    I am having this exact same issue with Windows 10 Home x64 version 1607 Build 14393.321 and have tried all the suggestions posted so far, but still can't stop this issue. I've been having all kinds of weird issues since installing the anniversary update as have thousands of other Windows 10 users I've found in many different forums by doing a Google search on the issue. Mine does crazy things like when clicking a link it will sometimes open in 2 separate tabs, sometimes when I close a tab it will close the one beside of it too, sometimes when I minimize a window that was full screen size when I reopen it, it will be a small window, sometimes when I minimize a window or close a tab the entire browser will close, most of the time if I click a link or a drop down menu I have to click it several times before it will finally accept my click, and lots of other weird happenings! I've tried removing the mouse in Device Manager and rebooting to reinstall it and have the latest driver installed as well, but this hasn't helped at all! It's a Windows 10 operating system problem that only began after installing the anniversary update and is driving me nuts! I sure hope Microsoft will soon release a update to resolve the issue! I've read on some of the help forums where people are getting the blue screen and their computer repeatedly crashing since the version 1607 installation. Thank God mine isn't doing that, knock on wood!
