    I'm new to this forum so this is my first question.

    My curser keeps jumping to the same position on my centre(main) screen (I have three screens), every 60 seconds.

    It starts by the blue circle appearing then the curser snapsto the same mid position on the screen. I have also noticed the wireless keyboardstops working for a few seconds at the same time.

    I have half cured the by un ticking the ‘Snap To’ optionunder mouse properties/pointer options, now I jet get the blue circle and thekeyboard not working every 60 seconds.

    I have been using the Microsoft wireless ‘Comfort 5000 Desktop’for about two months and got this problem six days ago after a Windows update.I then did a restore which resolved the problem for a day(ish) and them theproblem returned and further restores didn’t help. I have not done any further Windowsupdates since having this problem.

    I have just reinstated my old wired keyboard and that isnot being affected by the second blip!

    I hope someone can help?

    This really sounds like a driver issue. You should re-install the drivers for the mouse. Completely remove the driver, and re-install if windows does not auto re-install for you.

    I did try that and affter a lot delving it turned out to be the antivirus. I cured the problem by reinstalling it.

    Thanks again.
