    Erratic Mouse pointer

    I have a mouse pointer issue. First Running Windows 7 Home Prem. Have a MS Comfort Curve 4000 Key board, LabTec 800 Mouse. Software is MS Intellitype Pro 8. Both devcices are USB connected hardware. Neither uses its "own" software but rather Windows.

    Some times the mouse simply flys accross the screen seemingly to select some other program. Sometimes it goes to the start button sometimes to the task bar, sometimes to the browser (FF) tool bar. Does this running other programs as well. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to the action. Anyone else experiencing this issue?

    Do you have Snap to set in Control Panel > Mouse > Pointer Options?

    Hi hickoryshirt,

    Is the current behavior new or has it always been behaving as you described? Has anything changed on your system just prior to this behavior?

    Do you have any other device that is always connected to one of your USB ports? Are both keyboard and mouse plugged directly into your PCs USB ports, or is one or both connected through an external USB port such as on an LCD panel or a powered USB hub?

    It is possible the MS IntelliType Pro 8 software may be a source of conflict (the software may have become corrupted) affecting the mouse behavior. Do you have another mouse you could test on the system? If not, try uninstalling the Intellitype Pro software to see if that clears things up. If it does, then you could reinstall IntelliType to see if the problem is resolved.
