These should sort it.

After you down load, remember to run the update option before you run the prog it'self



and don't forget crazy mouse, it can cause strange things

scroll down about one page, or search the site for 'crazy mouse' it makes the mouse pointer behave crazy (as you might expect).

If you unplug the keyboard does it stop the problem?
If yes you may need a new one.

Mice are ludicrously cheap.

A simple Optical one can be bought for a tenner or so.

They work in exactly the same way as those costing £25.00 or more, but without the WOW factor.
