View Full Version : Mouse problems

I am running Win ME. Every so often, my mouse will flicker erratically all over the screen and drop down boxes (any sort) will open by themselves. After that, double clicking will not open programmes but will open as if you have right clicked on the programme. When I reboot everything is restored until next time it does it. I have no virus (checked using AVG, Nortons, PC-cillin) and nothing found. Would appreciate any advice you may have.

Ann. You mention that you have checked for a virus by using AVG, Nortons and PC-Cillin! Surely you don't mean that you have all these AV programs running on your machine at once? That in itself could be enough to cause erratic behaviour of your machine.

Having more than one antivirus package on your computer will cause all sorts of problems. Remove two.

No John, I have only one enabled constantly but occasionally I run them each manually just to get a '2nd opinion' as it were.
