    I upgraded to WinXP, & installed AOL trial, at first everything seemed ok. Then My keyboard suddenly quit on me. Over the next couple days, a few minutes after I have log in to winxp, my mouse curser stated going insane. I would blink & jump around & click on things other than what I was actually clicking. It opened all sorts of windows & ran all sorts of programes & comands for them. It seemed like the main one was AOL, but not exlusively. Now it still does that alittle & my keyboard works (some)but, If I highlight any type Box Such as Search, File name, or even program name(under the icons) it suddenly takes off on its own filling it over & over with (---------------------------------). Please help me! I know some of some subjects of PC's & computing.

    Hi PT_n_Kansas!

    Check all your connections & if that isn't it,
    post the problem in the Security Forums here:
    I believe it will be taken care of much quicker there...

    Good luck!

    Does that happen on all sites, or just a few? There is one link that I click on every Saturday, and if I do it using Firefox browser, Firefox immediately opens 117 new tabs. AOL may be having a similar reaction.
