Hello, Joe --

I have had the same problem, especially with "certain" mice.  I have 
largely (but NT completely!) escaped the problem -- by using a "pen and 
tablet" product.  I still need a mouse for things on the desktop (but 
NOT if they are on the taskbar!), but the pen and tablet make a  
STUNNING difference for me!!!  My product is called "Bamboo", and the 
connection is USB, but just about any similar product "ought to" work 
for you.
