    OK, but also take a look to

    HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelMouse

    in the registry.

    There are there some undocumented features:

    MouseThreshold1 and MouseThreshold2

    They have a similar way of working than the ones in X.

    On the other hand, when I started using Linux, I had problems like the ones you mention: you’ll get used to it when you find the appropiate values for you. And, if you use a laptop (or a large screen), try to use the sloppy focus option if your window manager supports it, you’ll love it!
