Recently my mouse started doing things by itself! Initially it would suddenly disappear and reappear in a different place on the doc or desktop, gradually it has become more annoying, it clicks and menus appear, extra windows appear without asking, docs are saved or deleted. to me it seems as if I am subject to a ??(software problem?) i read recently in a mag that you could send a mini programme to someone which did just this, can't remember however where it was.
I have norton Antivirus up to date and running
Pleaase, any comments, any solutions?
It took 2 mins to get this posted cos the arrow won't go where I want it.

Sounds like a faulty mouse - the little switches wear out eventually and the mouse goes crazy. Try a new mouse.

I have been having much the same sort of hassles with my mouse too......sometimes it is very hard to control as it seems to have a mind of its own. From memory this only started happening after I had extra ram installed.....could this possibly have any thing to do with it.
