Have a problem absolutely none of the local experts can help me with. On my PC running XP, if I have multiple windows open at once and the cursor/pointer happens to touch one of the windows in the background it immediatly brings it to the forefront. This used to only happen if I actually clicked on one of the background windows, but now just merely passing over it with the pointer brings it to the front. HELP, annoying as you imagine it is.

Seems like we've had this one before, or one like it, but I'm not coming up with much. Have you tried a different mouse? It seems reasonable that there may be a wiring short at the mouse end that simulates clicking when you move the mouse. Are you using any software like Intellimouse? Go to Mouse in the Control Panel and make sure you don't have Quicklock enabled, and check your double-clicking speed. Try changing the speed a bit slower or faster and see if the problem persists.

There is one other possiblity that the single click is enabled and the click speed is set to quick. Oh have you tried a different mouse? Herk may be right but anyway you look at it this one for solving is going to be a good one.

I have a feeling this post is going to get closed. Do you not have a psot just like this called No New Posts*
Multiple Window Viewing - making a new post is ok if the topic is totally different but this one appears to be the same thing. It is going to be more confusing than you can imagine.

If you have Microsofts' PowerToys TweakUI installed, you may have unintensionaly activated the x-mouse feature.
