Could be the mouse. Check for fluff, and waggle the cable.

As well as checking the mouse, mick 111, I would uninstall PC-Cillin (I always had problems with it and I assume you have the disk to re-install if you wish), and try using AVG click here, it's free with free updates, to see if that cures the problem.

Did you uninstall PC-cillin 2000 before you installed 2003.

I am running same OS and anti-virus with no problems.

Have you installed any other programs that may be causing a conflict?

Try "System Restore" - you can always return it back to present state if no improvement.
