    i have a dell laptop, and well my problem is, my mouse cursor moves slowly to the top left corner, or top right corner, its different everyday, ive heard stories from updating the video adapter drive, to virus, to new mouse (but i have a touchpad) to mouse pad, to optical mouse (i DO have a USB dell optical mouse, that when i connect it, it does the same thing, hard to edit pictures with this problem, any real suggestions?

    POST SCRIPT. i even went as far as to use HIJACKTHIS
