Hi folks,

my latest problem with my mac stems around the trackpad. When I try to click and drag something, such as an icon or a file from one place to another (moving something to a different folder for example, or moving a window to a different position on the screen), the mac will let the object go after a second or two, causing things to become misplace. If I want to move a window, I have to click and drag a number of times in order to get it to the position I want. It's not a hardware issue- somehow, it started doing this after the last update of snow leopard, and happens very frequently now.

Has this happened to anyone else, and if so, how did you solve it?
QUOTE Thanks
