First of all, I'm not sure if this is where I could discuss technical issues.
Thanks for any and all help.
My Mini, Tiger, intel 1.66 ghz. My cursor goes crazy every so often, fluttering in and out, I can't scroll up and down in any application, and open programs freeze and are very slow to respond. I restart to get rid of it and it has happened repeatedly in the past few weeks or so. Does anybody know what this is and how to correct it?
Again, thanks, and forgive newbie mistakes.

Well, you posted this in a 5 year old thread which was started in our Site Suggestions/Comments section about starting up a forum specific to the Mini. So, I moved it out to its own thread in the appropriate forum (Apple Desktops).

Thanks for any and all help.

This may seem obvious, but did you try changing out the mouse? Sometimes they get flakey, particularly the Apple Mighty Mouse.

If you don't have one, you should always have at least one spare cheapie wired mouse around just for troubleshooting these sort of things.

OK, thanks for the info

And shifting the post to a relevant thread. Checking out the old mouse. (I'd actually changed my mouse out from the super mouse that originally came with the system.)
Thanks and 'scuse me, again. But I DO like there being a place to come and discuss problems when they do arise.:Blushing:
