    What mouse are you using? I am using a kensington expert mouse pro (wireless). It will sometimes creep across the screen and other times it will just jump to the other side of my mointor.

    I don't have a mouse so I can't look. But, there probably is a setting that can be used to calm a mouse down in System Preferences > Mouse.

    my mouse is skipping around as well. I am using the apple wired mouse. I have deleted the .plist file for the mouse preference pane to no avail and have deleted all non apple preference panes to no avail. Compounding the problem is that my mouse doesn't skip, upon reboot, immediately, only have some time that seems random and the finder slows down no matter if I am in the finder or a dialog box is called up within a program. Again, these only happen after some time after a reboot...

    I've got an iMac and the new Macbook Pro, both with newly installed Snow Leopard. Both the mouse on my iMac and the track pad on my Macbook have gone nuts! They randomly go fast or slow at any given time. There is definitely a problem with the program as none of this was happening before Snow Leopard. Come on Apple! We need a fix now! Don't just ignore these posts!
