Mouse over events no longer work, in both the browser and o/s.

For example, if I go to the apple menu and hold my mouse over 'about this mac' it does not highlight. Or if I hold my mouse over a web URL in the browser the finger doesn't turn into a pointer or any such thing.

Even the doc doesn't respond to mouse overs (with the fish eye.)

Any ideas?

It's back to normal. What I did was unplug all external devices on my macbook pro, monitor, mouse, keyboard and disabled all startup programs. Upon rebooting everything works as expected.

I'm not sure what was causing the problem but it's fixed now :-)
QUOTE Thanks
