When I install PC Anywhere 10 on my windows 2000 pro pc my icon's go a wacky and also my mouse cursor has like a purpleish block around and where ever the mouse goes the screen goes a wacky in those areas.

I installed it fine on a my windows 2000 server machine which is exactly the same hardware.

caramilk, does this problem stop if you move the video acceleration to zero?

Do both have SP2 installed ??

Check  the drivers, and see if they both have the same versions.

I hope this helps !

yep you were right on the money........
I didn't bother updating the drivers earlier since I had the same drivers on my windows 2000 server machine.
