I think just about everyone has encountered this problem. I need a way to fix it. I've tried everything from their "opt-out" program which doesn't work, setting cookies to delete after every web browsing session, finding the individual files and putting them in quarantine with my anti-virus program (didn't work because I can't find the physical files yell). So any help would be greatly appreciated.

Some things to try. I know I sent you these in a PM. But I'll put this out there in case of others with the same issue. We'll figure this out!

Add to FireFox Internet Browser at Tools->Options->Exceptions-Cookies

DoubleClick.com
DoubleClick.net
Fastclick.com
FastClick.net
mediaplex.com
mediaplex.net

On Internet Explorer Browser do Tools->Internet Options->Privacy->Sites-> – Then type in the 6 web sites and press the Block button after each entry.

I did all of this in all browsers on both profiles on this computer and it still seems to be getting through.

Another concern I have is that certain dell mice develop a double clicking problem of their own. My brother in law told me this and says getting a new mouse for his computer solved his problem. Anyone know anything on this?

That sounds odd, but I guess it could happen. Have a spare mouse to test it out?

Hooked up a nice Logitech mouse we had on a laptop that crapped out. It would seem that the problem is completely fixed.

I know for sure the mouse wasn't causing the entire problem from the start but between blocking all the sites in the browser and changing the mouse, I've solved the problem completely.

doubleclick.net wouldnt have been the cause of the double clicking problem in the first place.

and just a heads up, most routers and modems allow you to block the sites on there as well. I have a few ad sites that I have blocked through the modem

@Oly, I have Malwarebytes. I guess the doubleclick problem was mainly in the mouse but it's odd that blocking the doubleclick cookies reduced how frequent it was.
