Go to control panel - add/remove programs - Internet Explorer - - choose the Repair Option - Reboot, and see if that helps.

The problem sounds to be with your mouse. Try another mouse or pointing device first.

You can also remove the mouse from the control panel, system, device manager. Then reboot and reinstall the mouse.

Another thing to try is clean the inside of the mouse. Sometimes the gunk inside can yield enough compost for a small garden.

Have you changed your graphics card drivers recently? The last time I had this problem it was due to using buggy graphics drivers.

actually i discovered this solution the day before i received this reply.I remembered somewhere recently I read someone say they had used beta drivers for tnt2 graphics card and they worked so I installed them myself.I re-installed the standard 3.68 detenator drivers and the problem has gone away.

It is interesting to see the co-relation between drivers and the functionality of the computer.For example I recently ran some benchmarks on my computer and noticed that my hardrive benchmark results were slower than they had been. After re-installing the original drivers, i ran the benchmark again and the results are back up to where they were.
