Weird . Whatever is storing the mouse cursor position is a few hundred x and y points out?

You can highlite the links and make them clickable

Are you clicking the mouse ?
Is it a radio mouse or cable?
Check the mouse for a grain of dust/sand on one side of the pickup creating an echo effect maybe?

I don't quite understand what you say. I have a new USB mouse and it works on most linux distros in Vmware. Puppy linux or Puppy linux based distro have mouse problem.
In Vmware Player which is free for non-commecial, it is not clickable at all
I need to try Puppy linux in virtual machine before i try on actual machine.

Have you got the correct mouse drivers installed in both the host AND the guest (may be different drivers)???

I had the same problem in VirtualBox with some distros (most of them, pups). Solution was to declare (in VM setup) my ps2 mouse as... a ps2 mouse (not as a USB tablet nor as a USB multi-touch tablet). And voilà! Hope this helps!

PS: If nothing works fine with your USB mouse, then maybe you can mitigate (it's a pain though) that deviation moving to the border of the VM window... and keep moving your mouse in that direction (until you go out of the VM). Then, bring back your cursor to the VM. You'll see that that deviation in distance disappeared (at least for a while).

For instance, if your pointer is “moved” to the left, let's say, one inch, from where you see it clicks, then move the mouse to the left border of the VM, AND keep moving it (against the border of the window) the same distance (in this example, one inch) it is deviated.

Very important: If the vmware tools are installed and they impede you to bump against the border of the VM window, then the suggestion above won't help Sad
