Windows 7: "Jumpy" screen

"Jumpy" screen

When using Quicken DeLuxe (usually) or Word Perfect 3x (sometimes) and Gmail (occassionally), the screen is really jumpy. Selecting from the top menus is nearly impossible. I have attempted to run Quicken from the command prompt and that seems to work but I'd really like to find a way to run it from a normal boot process.
I run Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit.
Thanks.

This may sound like a odd question, but have you recently changed to a new mouse?

Not recently but the jumpyness was existing before I changed.

Well I suppose the best place to start is by checking your drivers. I don't know if I want to put you through making a repair disc and restore point just so you can use driver verifier though. Let me message one of the senior members for input for you.

Can you make snapshots (cell phone quality is fine) of the "Jumpy" Screen?
