I have a problem with the mouse when i am working in Word (and other software) when i try to highlight text for deleting or copying. As I hold the button down and move from the start to the finish point the mouse seems to drop the connection and then restart at another point or it will drag the text. The left button when clicking to select something will randomely double click rather than just highlight with one click.
This is becoming very, very frustrating. I am trying to edit documents and it is taking forever. I have read through some similar issues but I am trying to find an answer that is not simply taking the batteries our and clicking the left & right buttons! This seems to be the standard cop out answer from a Logitech expert.

This kind of issue might be caused by interference, I would try to relocate the receiver as close to the mouse as possible and to move devices such as a wireless router, cordless phones and cell phones away from your computer. I would also try to reload the mouse drivers and install the latest version of SetPoint software for your Anywhere Mouse MX
To reload the drivers you can try this: Open the Device Manager, expand the Mice and Other Pointing Devices section, right click on the Logitech mouse, select uninstall and unplug the receiver. After that restart the computer and once it boots up connect the receiver to a different USB port.
If that doesn't help please contact phone support for further trouble shooting and to check the warranty information. If you are in U.S. or Canada you can call 646-454-3200, if not please choose your country from this list

I think this is a momentary lag issue. You can also see it when the mouse drops items that you are dragging and you can see it if you slowly move the mouse across the screen and it hesitates momentarily. I exchanged mine for a new one and the new one works perfectly

I see that you had some lag and dragging issues with your Anywhere Mouse MX, and that you got a replacement that works fine.
This type of issue could be either related to interference or to a hardware failure, that's why it's important to go through some troubleshooting to identify the nature of the issue. In this case most likely it was hardware related.
I'm glad that everything worked out for you, keep on enjoying your Anywhere Mouse MX.

I had similar issues, both with Anywhere MX and Performance MX
It turns that an online post I found somewhere had the right solution.
It is simply dust that collected under the mouse button that makes it fail.
The recommended to lift the button a little (e.g. with a needle) and spray compressed air under it.
I could even do it with "human powered" compressed air (simply blow strongly).
