    I ve upgraded to XP for a about 4 weeks now and I realized that I cannot use the 2 extra side functions of my mouse because i have not installed the intellipoint software. I installed it and now the mouse is slighty jumpier than it was before. Help?

    Look in the mouse settings in the control panel. The two settings you are interested in are under the Pointer options tab. Check and adjust the pointer speed and more likely the cause of the problem, uncheck the box for Snap To. This "feature" automatically moves the pointer to the default button in a dialog box and will cause the pointer to jump there whenever a new application is run.

    I think that it was the mouse. I switched from teh Intellimouse optical to the wheel mouse optical, no more skipping. But the intellimouse doesnt skip on the other computer.
