Well, I figured out how to trash my prefs files, but that didn't work. I tried the "Performance" tab on the prefs, with Open Gl and without Open Gl, but get the double cursors when left clicking with the tools when an image is open.
I'm using the same video driver as I had been before the hard drive died, so that should not be a factor. I'm running WinXP SP-3, 3G ram on a Dell XPS730 with a pair of nVidia cards yoked for "SLI," everything the same as what I had been using, withthe same settings before and after the death of the drive.
While it is possible to work on my photos with the double cursor, it makes it very hard to be accurate, and it shouldn't be that way, anyway.
Has any one else here had this quirky experience?
