Mousepad, right clicker problems on ibm thinkpad t41

\015 When scrolling around, will click by itself and open multiple pages at once. roll over icons and they are moved around and hard to get them back to their original spot. i bought a new hard drive and installed windows xp pro on it, and several other programs i use. now it is starting to do it again. please help?\015

Answers :

You can try looking at the manufacturers website for a driver update to your trackpoint http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-46258.html#mouse
\015\012Try turning off the tap to click option. This should resolve accidentally dragging things where they don't need to be.
\015\012Better option...if you're using this laptop at home just invest in a wireless mouse and set the laptop to disable the trackpoint when an external mouse is detected.
