Hi,

When highlighting several objects at once in Microsoft PowerPoint 2003 on a computer running windows 7 the objects seem to move over to the right slightly on there own even though the mouse hasn’t been moved and im not sure why. However highlighting objects on powerpoint 2003 on a computer running windows XP does not have the same issue.

The main file in question we are having this issue with is the attached file and happens when we try to highlight several of the circles they automatically move slightly on there own once highlighted, any ideas why this could be?

Try locating the PowerPNT.exe file. Right Click > Properties > Compatability > Disable Desktop Composition

Hummm... not on my machine (with Win7 and Office 2010)

I'd be looking to see if there were any video driver (or video firmware) updates
