    Game: Theme Hospital
    OS: Windows Vista

    Currently, a short while after starting the game, say 1 or 2 minutes, my mouse begins to freeze up and 'lag', etc ie it wont respond to me moving the mouse, but then will suddenly "jump." Kindof like when your mouse is running low on batteries and the cursors moving sometimes and sometimes not. I tried to run the game in DOSbox thinking it would work but it says its not a DOS application. Any help? The game is quite old and I've also tried running it in compatibility for Windows 95/98 etc but then the colours mess up.

    All help appreciated this has been driving me crazy for a while!

    Also maybe its worth mentioning I'm playing on a laptop and the tracking problem happens with both the pad and my laser mouse (just ingame though everywhere else it works fine), so I'm sure its not my mouse that is the problem :)
