Alright basically since a few days ago my computer has been acting up (mouse-wise)
If i roll over menus, especially in firefox, sometimes the menus will stay open until
i actually click somewhere else. My mouse can be moved anywhere but the menu
stays open. I can also click on say.. tools, and roll my mouse over other
items in the top menu and it will act like its clicking them but i only clicked once?
This happens on programs like aim as well and it has been getting on my last nerve.
And come to think of it my whole system is slow ever since this mouse crap started
going on.

here is a basic screen shot. As you can see if i click on like view one time and drag
my mouse across the top menus they all open on their own. Is this normal? it does
it on all programs that have top menus like that. Everything feels 'sticky'
anyone have an idea?

I have read your post 3 times and I think it's normal. Mind does the same thing and always has. There might be a way of stopping it from doing that. I have never checked because it never bothered me.

Not since this occured (or since ive noticed it), no. Have done too many 'big' uninstalls apparently system restore can cause problems if some of the registry stuff is still on your computer. Going back in time wouldn't help. I'm starting to wonder if it's always been doing this.

I read up on this all over the web and couldn't find not a damn thing about it glad its not just me though.

I just read it one more time, looked at my FF and it's normal.
All menu entries, which have sub-menus (Posted Image) will open those sub-menus on a mouse hover.
