    Windows 98SE. The mouse jumps around, I have to click an icon 5 times or
    more to open a folder/start a program or close one down. Sometimes it
    doesn't release and draws boxes on the screen or highlights text when I move
    it. I have Norton Antivirus, Zone Alarm, Spy sweeper, Spybot, Spyware
    blaster and have used Trend Housecall. None of them detect a virus or
    spyware. The mouse works perfectly if I am in safe mode. I have tried
    disabling startup items but nothing makes any difference. I am having
    difficulty with this message as the cursor sort of sticks if I try to edit
    something. When I click send it will take several clicks to select it, that
    is if I can get it to the send button. It's a Logitech cordless keybd and
    mouse, the batteries are ok and I have used it with no problems for 3 years.
