You're legend!  Thanks GF.    :)

As I said, I do PC work & I'm a real recycler. On principle, I rail against perfectly useful machines going into our landfills until they reach the sky- it's sickening to me.

My pensioners only ever use email, web, a tiny bit of photo viewing & word processing. Linux Lite is perfect for that.

Again- thank you. I'll look for the 1.0.6 & get it, asap.

Cheers

Thanks for that---> still battling the dreaded "came from northern hemisphere" cold, atm...

What is it you believe to have changed from 1.0.4/6 to 1.0.8/2.0?  I'm still thinking about the video card cause being the trouble. It's just odd that it would show as a mouse pointer issue. I'm curious how something like a mouse could go so wrong & be connected to video?  Unless it's something to do with the USB in general for certain attached devices...hmm. Maybe I should try some other USB stuff, like cams, etc. Or am I totally off here?

Any chance a BIOS update would make any diff? Prob not, but figured I'd ask.

Lastly, any security issues sticking what the old version?

Ta.
