I´m been having this problem since I installed windows 7 (Maybe it´s not a problem and Windows 7 works like this)
Whenever I select text, be it in a browser, html editor, Word, etc., it never starts selecting from the letter I place my mouse over, it always starts selecting from a letter before or a letter after, as if the selection was precise enough.
In Windows XP this never happened, you could start selecting text from whatever place and the selection was precise.
All of the friends I´ve asked said this also happened on their computers as well.
If anyone can be of any help it would be great.
