AnAfrican, you told me there is probably some program hi jacking my cpu and causing my mouse to act up. You then said this was probably something I'd have to live with. Dear brothah it is shameful in my eyes to suffer without a struggle. I've noticed this whatever it is seems to take hold of my mouse around noon each day. Is there anyway I can find out what program is doing this? I maybe need to just go read a book at noon but first I'd like to find out what's going on. Maybe I can find a way to reschedule it to work at midnight or sumptin.
