Turn off automatic click in Windows XP

By allinson ·
Sometimes when the mouse pointer is over a windows button for a few moments while I decide what to do, the operating system seems to automatically press the button without my touching the mouse. How can I turn this "improvement" off?

Turn off automatic click in Windows XP

In the control panel the mouse applet has a buttons tab. Is the option turn on click lock checked? If so see if unchecking that makes it stop. It also tells how to turn that feature on and if you would want to keep it from time to time.
