Answer

There are chances of multiple cells selected or region of cells selected when you click on one cell.

There are many reasons:

1) When extend mode is selected (press F8)

2) when view in page layout view, switch back to normal view

3) It depends on GUI (Graphic user interface) conflicts and at times it will not be compatible with excel application.
