Glad you found it. Congrats.

And this info will help others should this type of problem come up again for someone else. Good to know.

The problem has returned. Turning off the Google Toolbar has somehow made the system less likely to do it... but, the problem continues.
Most recently with the following programs open:
* Several Firefox windows
* MS Word (2003)
* CNN.com Live Player streaming audio and video (in a Firefox window)
* WinAmp (minimized & not playing... closing it entirely didn't help)
With all of these programs open, moving the mouse especially to scroll a window, causes audio honking (static) and mouse lock-ups (clap-trap.)

The next step is to try a different mouse.

How about the CNN Live Player? You might want to try uninstalling that and see if it could be the cause of the conflict before spending money on new parts.

The mouse is on-hand. No purchase was needed.
The CNN.com Live player uses Flash within Firefox.
Flash might be the cause of this problem.
After testing out the new mouse for a while, or until the problem returns, I'll try running Firefox with the absolute minimum number of add-ons to survive. I've got a lot of add-ons and one or more of them could be conflicting with the CNN.com Live Flash player.

The latest Flash release is 10.1.53.64, which was tagged an "important" update by Mozilla. Just check to see if you are running that version, and the latest update of Firefox.

And you may be right about the add ons. In Firefox you can disable them one at a time to test, which will avoid having to uninstall and reinstall each of them.
