This is a wild guess, but it could be a hardware problem. If you have another mouse, plug it in and see if it does the same thing.<br><br>

It doesn't sound like a hardware problem since it happens only over clickable areas. Are you on X? If so, why not fsck?<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

I agree, this is a software problem, and possibly just a browser problem.<br><br><br>[color:red]semicolon dash parenthesis</font color=red>

Re: Help!! - 09/22/02 12:47 PM

That's a thought. Have you tried another browser to see if the same thing happens?<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

Now be fair, I said I would[color:red]n't</font color=red> strap her down with wire, but would ask her to buy a new computer.

Re: Help Update - 09/23/02 11:18 AM

Well I ran disk first aide and it did not fix the problem.<br>I then booted into a different xtension set - that worked. So I must have a xtension conflict somewhere.<br><br>Thanks all for your help.<br><br>

Re: Help Update - 09/23/02 11:23 AM

Some of the most notorious extension conflicts are USB drivers. In OS 9, I made a habit of turning all USB extensions off and then turning on one at a time to determine which were really necessary.<br><br>[color:red]Alec</font color=red>
