Win XP .When I press start it is almost as though the mouse pointer is magnetized and no matter how carefully I select, the programs behave like iron filings .Sometimes I have to take the pointer right around the screen and try the stealthy approach! No No No! it's not funny, come on guys ,help me out, it's driving me crackers

Obvious question. Have you tried a new mouse or, if using a wireless mouse, have you installed the up to date drivers?

There is a program called 'Crazy Mouse' which some idiots think is funny. Just in case you have this, try ( with difficulty ) of course, START/FIND/FILES AND FOLDERS, then type crazy mouse. Ensure that the whole of your C drive is selected for search. If it shows, then right click and delete it.

Thank you all, it is/was a Logitech mouse. I am now using bog standard mouse no problems! I'm not sorry to change really as the darn thing seems to eat batteries!! Thanks again
