    Just bought a new pc with win xp. (been using win 98 for years before). I use IB's TWS with win 98 with no problems, but with win xp and TWS running, my mouse get very jerky, not smooth movement. If I close TWS, the mouse works fine, so I think there is some conflict with TWS. Doesn't happen with win 98 at all. Anyone have the same problem or possibly offer any tips.

    Thanks in advance.

    I havn't had any problems since I moved over to XP. So far XP has been very reliable.

    Got the problem fixed. More than one source has told me to drag the TWS from it's current monitor position (i have 3 monitors) to the primary monitor and then back to its original position on the other monitor. Sure enough that fixed the mouse problem. I don't know if I have to do that everytime after i boot up, but we'll see tomorrow. Funny sort of solution but it worked.
