    RickO - yes I have. Multiple times. This is only happening in Quicken, no other Windows apps

    If you're using a wireless mouse, could the battery be running low?
    Has dust accumulated at the bottom of the mouse, near the sensors?

    Sorry, I'm a Mac-only user so I can't help. Hopefully somebody else will think of some reason why this would only happen in Quicken.

    Clean the Mouse, as well as the Mouse Pad. Salt and Crumbs will cause the problem.
