I have Elements 9 and when using my stamp tool and other tools, and I select an area to repair the tool shoots a streak across my work. What could be causing this??

Bugs in some versions of tablet drivers have caused that, and some older mouse drivers.

Thanks for the reply. I noticed it with CS5 also and it is really annoying, it jumps all over the place unless I wait a few seconds after each move with the stamp tool and the spot tool. The file name whitens up then after a couple seconds it reverts back to normal and the tools seem to work for a while. I thought it may be the lack of enough memory, I'm running on 4gb of ram with all other programs closed. I use a Logitech M305 wireless mouse. When I use CS2 there isn't a problem?
