cursor keeps jumping to 'start' button

The mouse keeps jumping to the 'start' button. but....

I use the same mouse with another computer via KVM switch and all seems to be well on that machine.

Up to date AVG reports the machine clear.

Spyware blaster is up to date and enabled.

Spybot S&D is up to date and reports the machine clear.

Ad aware is up to date and reports the machine clear.

Cables have been swapped with no change.

Housecall reports the machine clear.

Any ideas please?

Try this:-

Go to Control Panel, Mouse icon, Pointer Options tab, and UN-check the "Automatically move pointer" option box in the "Snap To" section of the window.

I use an Intellipoint mouse and things may be different for some other device but check through its options to see for yourself.
