On a W98 pc the mouse cursor shoots off erraticaly when the mouse is touched, flying all over the screen. I have tried different drivers/mice/monitor/settings in controll panel etc with the same result???

I remember seeing some issues with an erratic mouse in Windows 98, and a virus was the culprit. Have you checked for this?

A virus is a definate possibilty. Also is it a ps2 mouse? Do you have a usb mouse you can try? We had a batch of mice (all the same brand, bought at the same time) that eventually did similar things. Replaced them and they've worked properly ever since. But I suppose if you've tried that maybe its the ps2 port thats faulty.
