when i do some things with my mouse, the cursor goes to a different parts on the screen or sumthing like that. like when i click an okay button, the cursor goes down onto somewhere else on the screen. and when i go into the 'Tools' options for internet explorer, and i refresh my cookies, the cursor hovers over the 'Okay' button. the memory for the cursor is not right. i use a laser IBM non-wireless mouse. isnt there any way i could make it so the cursor just stays in one spot unless i move my mouse?

Hi Powerslave!

Go to START-->CONTROL PANEL. In the new window that appears, double-click on MOUSE. In the next window that appears, click on the POINTER OPTIONS tab and uncheck the box next to Automatically move point to the default button in a dialog box. Click APPLY and OK. Your mouse should now only move when you actually move the mouse. :whistling:

the newer model mouses have a button usually on top sometimes a dial by sqrew at the bottom of the mouse but this will increase and decrease the sensetivity of the mouse this will only be available to lazer mouses:)

Best wishes :whistling:

i used the ram booster, but it did not fix the problem. evertime i open something in windows that has an 'Okay' button on it, the cursor always drags itself to that 'Okay' button right away.

help!

This is obviously a some sort of 'smart pointer' feature included in the software that was installed when you first got the mouse. What is the make & model of the mouse itself?

okay. i do not think it is a spyware problem or ad-aware problem or virus problem, becuz i use to use a wireless mouse before and i did not have this problem, plus i scanned my computer not to long ago.

here are the specifications of my mouse:

MODEL: MO28BO
ASM P/N: 19K2005
Manufactured for Micro Innovations
S/N: 23- 0 1 7 3 4 4
Company: IBM

if its not a problem it is probably a problem with a feature in your mouse go through all the setting's with your mouse and check for a special feature like auto select (example)

I FIXED THE PROBLEM!

The problem was is that I needed a PS2-Connector and connect it into my USB of the mouse, and that fixed the problem.

problem solved.
