How can I turn off Windows XP Home Edition's auto select? I'm not sure if I'm using the correct term for it, but it's when you move your mouse over an icon and Windows XP automatically selects it for you and you only have to click on it once... sometimes it even automatically opens the icon for you! It's driving me insane and I can't find where to turn the stupid thing off! Please help!!!!:eek:

Same here. Doubleclick abolished long time ago.
TweakUI has a nice feature which lets you adjust the hover time of your mouse. Set it to lets say 400 ms until you are accustomed to the mouseover select and then make it faster. I found 200 ms a practical value.
Once you are accustomed to it, you won't miss it, saves you hundreds of clicks every day.
