That was me! I merely posted that during the install of my new
motherboard that it went ape, and I found out later that my optical
mouse was ragging the USB subsystem with a clogged up mouse wheel. Once
I cleaned it out, everything went back to normal. Just a head's up for
anyone else dealing with a new install and potential gotcha's. It's
there for posterity. That's all... apparently newer motherboards are a
lot less forgiving. Ric
