    Default Unstable Solitaire

    My patience app seems to have gone all funny.

    Clicking on the pack it flicks past1 or 2 times instead of just showing the top of next three cards ?

    I have run everthing, malwarebites,Spybot and Ccleaner.

    I hope I don't need a new install.

    Thanks lads,once again

    Have you got a wireless mouse Cicero? Do the batteries need replacing?

    Is your mouse button sticking and making patience deal twice instead of once?

    Do you have a tremor in your mouse finger that keeps the button down?

    None of the above John, I should add that the cards will not drag the first time.At least not every time.
    All has been perfect till about a week ago.

    Mouse activity OK on other software? Tried another mouse?

    Well, given my level of computer expertise, I thought I would ask the simple questions to save time for the experts to ask the really tricky stuff... Glad you don't have tremors at least.

    Mouse looks like the probable culprit to me

    Problem appears to be with cards only.

    Must buy a cheap 2nd mouse for testing.

    I think you are right lads.

    Have tried an old on and it works well.

    All my mice are logitech and have let me down in about a year, do we recommend any other makes?

    Funny that, I had a Logitech keyboard and mouse combo back in its box in the cupboard, never to be used again until I donated the set to Molten Media...

    I can't believe I am writing this, but we have two computers using Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse combos, and they have been with us for about four years without causing any problems...

    Funnily enough I have a wee Belkin wireless mouse for use with my laptop because I don't like trackpads much (funnily enough because I think you have recently developed suspicions about that brand). It too has been faultless, but I wouldn't recommend it for regular use because it is so small I think you would get RSI.

    So my suggestion is to go with a Microsoft wireless mouse, but be ready to spend money on batteries. Goodness me, I recommended a Microsoft product...

    I have a cordless one on my laptop, or I would if I could find the tiny USB connection, wonder if I can get another?
    I love wasting money on new kit, so will get the cordless Microsoft jobbie.
