I use an Acer netbook win 7,with an external mouse. It's a small screen - 10.1 in.- and I have found recently (but not initially) that small windows opened for dialog or a new window selected from the task bar close again before I can even get the mouse pointer inside it to work........is there a way of making the window selection "stick" until a new selection is made ?

I don't know if it's relevant, but I use a mouse with Netbook and Laptop. I find I have to disable the "trackpad" to avoid the mouse or cursor moving erratically as my hand brushes against it.

Could having two "mouse" devices running be causing problems?

Try another mouse first before changing settings. It could be the surface the mouse is on that could cause this. Otherwise check the sensitivity of the finger pad that it's not too high.
