Sorry to hear you are having problems with your mouse in IE7.
This can be often caused by malware, but I see that you have only just had your machine cleaned up yesterday in the malware removal forum and it would therefore, be really bad luck if your computer had become infected again quite so quickly.
It is interesting that the mouse works satisfactorily in other programmes and malfunctions only in IE7
The following steps may narrow down the areas to check:
1 Physically disconnect your wireless mouse, whilst your machine is OFF
2 Connect an ordinary PS2 mouse (not wireless or USB)
3 Reboot and see how this reacts in IE7
If the problem persists with the PS2 mouse, then it would be worth running System File Checker to check for/and replace any damaged or missing Windows protected System Files
sfc /scannow (note the space)
Scan will normally take 20 minutes or so to run/correct
Have your Microsoft Windows XP installation disc handy as SFC may wish to copy over good files from your disc if it needs to replace/repair damaged or missing protected system files that it can't find good copies of elsewhere on your system.
Rebboot your computer and see how you go.
Post back here in this thread and let us know how you get on.
