Mouse click frustration

I am used to using the mouse very quickly. I typically move across the
screen very fast, click, and move on very fast. I have noticed in XP, it
doesn't see my clicks sometimes. This was never a problem in win2k. I
notice the difference when using a computer that is still on win2k - no
problems there. When I use ANY xp computer I see the problem. I have a
brand new Dell 8400 with a 3 ghz pentium.

I have increased the mouse polling to the max of 200. Any other
suggestions?

Have you tried downloading a program such as TweakUI. Which allows some extra
mouse options. This may allow you to speed up the rate at which your mouse
will move on the screen.

You obviously have a substantial computer that should be able to cope with
as much mouse movement as you can physically create.

I am sorry but am Unsure os where to find the download for Tweak UI, as it
was a while ago in which I downloaded it. As I believe I got it off a
Microsoft downloads page, you could try just searching for TweakUI in the
"Search Microsoft.com for:" box that appear in the top right hand corner of
all their pages.

Hope I've been a help.

Please quote some of the original post when you reply. TweakUI isn't
going to help the OP with his mouse issue. Either the mouse drivers
support more options or they don't.

To the OP - try a different mouse. Since you like to click very fast and
you've had this mouse since Windows 2000, it is quite probably that
your mouse is elderly. Treat yourself to a new one.

He did, it was under the sig seperator as per OE defaults, so when you
reply it gets dropped, still annoying but a lot of people do it
including many MVPs.

I've seen more problems caused by people not knowing what they're doing
with TweakUI that I never recommend using it. It's as bad as registry
cleaners if you ask me. In the right hands it's fine.

Thanks, Steve. You are so right - my newsreader does honor the sig
separator so I didn't see his quoting. Maybe the next version of OE
will hew to what everyone else considers "standards". Then again, maybe
not. ;-)

Best regards,
