    In the last 48 hours or so, my optical mouse is showing bizzare behavior, especially if I am playing free cell and I try to move cards by clicking on them. Also, when I click on certain menu buttons on some web sites, it also takes several attempts to open the menu with the mouse. Is this a hardware problem or is it in windows settings? Should I try replacing the mouse or could it be something else. Any help with this issue would be most appreciated. Thank you Kevin

    try unplugging and replugging in your mouse.
    you may want to try cleaning up your temp. files, cookies and defragging your system.

    then again it may be time for a new mouse....is it very old?
