This problem usually happens when a driver or software is in conflict with the mouse or the mouse is going bad.
Try these steps:
1. Try using a different mouse. If is a trackball, clean the tracks
2. Uninstall Microsoft Intellipoint and restart the computer. This sometimes causes conflicts.

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
