Hello,

I have just recently developed a very jumpy mouse! When I go to drag an email into a folder it takes several attempts to make it work. It keeps getting dropped or ends up on the task bar?

Also when I try to highlight a line of text to delete or make corrections the highlight jumps all over the place or when I let go of the left button the highlight disappears? This happens everywhere.m in the pas
At first I though there might be a bug in the computer but I have tried several scans with "Malware Bytes" an nothing shows up. I use "Avast" for virus protection and the scans are clean. The mouse is a Logitech Wireless and it has never been a problem in the past. I though the problem might be relegated to just my email program "Windows Mail" but it is showing up everywhere?

I am running Vista (32) and Firefox Ver 3.6.2

Has anyone ever experienced this. Would appreciate your help on trying to correct:confused:

Thanking you in advance.

Did you change mouse pads? Tried another one? Is there any lint or gunk build up on the bottom, does it drag easily?

Hi Guys,

Thanks for your input. Seems to now be working okay! New battery, new mouse pad and I cleaned the bottom of the mouse.

Thanks again!
