Hello

 

I have a synaptic mouse and I have a wireless router connected to another USB port.

 

To be clelar the problem ariises when I try edit a document or play a game like Backgammon where you constantly use the mouse. When I am typing the text itself it is not erratic.

 

I forgot to tell you that with the other expert I downloaded Touch Freeze as a remedy. I thought it worked but it did not.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
