If you mean the mouse double-clicking on its own when you only
single-click, that probably means the mouse button has worn out.  (And
CHEAP mice are rated for fewer clicks.)

6.2.1 worked very well for me.
6.4.3 was a major disappointment in several respects.  The video behaved
so poorly as to be unusable.
6.4.4 was a huge improvement.
6.7.0 didn't work well for me.  Choppy to the point of very, very irritating.
6.7.1 is a huge improvement.

800x600 video adapter + DVD-ROM and enough RAM to run 6.4.3 in graphics
mode: Now that is an unexpected combination.
