No all keys working fine I think it may have something to do with a formula

I tried that and only got the stanard setup and formatting was also highlighted is that the prob?
Another thing if I click on say b4 and move one square to c4 the box at the top shows 1r*2c what does this mean?

try :

tools
options
general

and see what is checked against "zoom with intellimouse"

maybe your mouse is sending different signals than what excel is expecting ?

(sorry - just a shot in the dark)
