What kind of mouse are you using? If it is a standard-issue Apple USB mouse, is it on a shiny surface? <br><br>

I am using the standard Apple mouse on a shiny surface.....but it never reacted like this in the past. It started to jump only after installing OS 10.5. It has become a nuisance during standard operation.<br><br>

Is the mouse going bad? When the wire going into the mouse starts to break it does that. Bad design, they all do that. Can you try it on a different computer or try a different mouse?<br><br>------> JD's Trivia game<br><br>------> MCF-MM Trivia game

Check out this link, if this is the mouse you're using. It shows how to repair it.<br><br>Edit, of course, trying a different mouse would be a heck of a lot easier! <br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by dreed2 on 03/18/08 08:53 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
