Jumpy Vista

  DAKAR 22:15 25 Aug 2008

Hi all
My wifes pc running Vista seems very jumpy when clicking to open programmes or emails in the inbox
For instance when she clicks on a message in the inbox a message either above or below the one selected will open,and when she clicks on bookmarks the drop down menu will open and close and she has to keep selecting it before it stays open,sometimes she selects a message in the inbox and it dumps it in the deleted folder
Any thoughts as to how to rectify will be appreciated

What sort of mouse are you using eg wireless, wired, optical, lazer, ball type.
Is it plugged in properly?

Hi Ditch999
the mouse is wired and is plugged in ok the problem only appears to be in certain areas eg email and selecting dropdown menus
should I try a different mouse

When in a drop down box put the cursur in the box and try the arrow keys to drop down the list. Does the problem still occur?

Use the arrow keys to drop down the email lists and check that as well. Then report back please.
