Windows 7: Latest Windows 7 Leak Claims to be RTM

Yes, likely so but it's not happened with the last 4 upgrade installs.
They have all gone smoothly and shown noticeable improvements all round plus no mouse problem. John

Hi John, does it happen with only specific application?

Yes. I use FF 3.5 and (so far) it only happens with the Digg site.
At first it's ok but after clicking on a couple of Digg posts and returning to the main page the mouse pointer starts to flicker so much and for a lengthening period that I have to get off the site.
I moved on to Reddit which is a similar type of site and no problem.
Very strange.
Of course it might happen with sites I've not looked at yet but I'm worried it'll spread.
So why Digg? Or is it the mouse or the build or the upgrade install?

Cheers,J

If it doesn't happen with any other websites, then it could be either some cookies doing some mischief. Try using another browser(IE) and see if the issue persists. Let me know the results.

Hello Dinesh. I just tried Digg in both IE and Safari and it happens in both!
Very weird, J

I have been using digg.com for the last 10 mins and did not face any mouse issues. Could you please restart your computer in safe mode with networking and try browsing digg.com to see if the problem persists?

Hi Dinesh,

Just restarted in safe mode with networking and browsed Digg.com and the problem is still there.
Could it be the mouse driver? As I said this has been the only driver I've had to download and install each time I've upgraded or clean installed W7.

Have to go to work soon but I'll be back on in about 12 hours.
Thanks very much for your input, John

Hi John, uninstall your mouse driver and then do a windows update and it will find a generic driver for your computer. Look at this thread. He is having the same mouse and he fixed it this way. If it still doesn't work, by the time you come back from work, i will try and find a soution that will work.

Thanks a lot Dinesh. I really have to leave or I'll be late for work. I'll try this tomorrow and get back to you. Much appreciate your help, John
