Win 2000 Server Task Bar and Mouse issue

I have a Win 2000 SQL Server in a rack of servers running off a KVM Switch and the mouse is now uncontrollable and the task bar keeps moving all over the place. I can remote to it and work fine. So I thought it was the KVM - testes a swap and it's not the problem. Also ran NAV and doesn't seem to be a virus. Any ideas? It's really annoying.

This happens all the time with KVM switches. Sometimes a reset of the switch will help. I think it's not just the switches problem, but a combination Sitch - PS2 mouse interface. The mouse interface reacts unpredictably when the mouse is temporarily removed during operation, and that more or less happens when you use the switch. Using a switch with USB Ports for USB Mice should resolve the issue.
