It may be the mouse. If it is an optical mouse and you are using it on a shiny surface try putting it on a matt surface.

You can uninstall/remove the drivers for the mouse in Device Manager, they will be automatically reinstalled when you reboot.

Borrow another mouse to try.

Thumbs up

Thank you Matt. Yes it was the mouse. We took it apart and found a loose saudering (sp) piece. It made a connection and then released and went haywire. I had another one on hand and I am happy now. THANK YOU FOR POSTING A REPLY. HAGD!

Glad to hear you found the problem. Thanks for letting us know. I would not have thought to open the mouse.
