Strange highlighting problem with XP

I have an intermittent problem that causes a left click on my mouse to highlight not only the item I'm trying to select but everything below the selected item. For instance, clicking on a link on a web page causes the whole page below the link to become selected as if I was selecting the whole area. This happens across all programs when it happens including Explorer, Outlook, or anything where a selection can be made which leads me to believe it is an XP problem. The only way to resolve the problem is to reboot.
I'm running XP Pro SP2 on a 3.4 P4 with 1 Gig of memory. This is a fresh install of XP on a new SATA drive but the problem occurred before this install as well. I thought the new install would cure it.
Anyone recognize this problem?
