Before I had to reinstall Windows XP my mouse pointer would automatically go to a default or obvious selection when a box would come up with a selection such as SAVE or CANCEL. The mouse would go right to the SAVE. I do not remember how I set this up. Any one have any ideas? Is there a tweak that can do this?

Well, can you move the mouse pointer when it goes to the default selection? I mean, as long as it doesn't freeze the pointer where it is, there seems to be no problem here.

Go to the Control Panel and double-click on the mouse icon
Check your settings there
I believe what you are looking for is the Snap-To option
When you reinstalled Windows, did you reinstall the mouse software?
