Simple things like clinking the 'x' to close the window or clicking the background to bring up a menu. Like I said, really random and unpredictable.

It could be the cpu (maybe)... I 'did' have a terrible memory stick and didn't know it but has since been replaced and did full memtest (all 9 of them) on it just about 5 days or so ago because I just wanted to make sure the memory hadn't gone bad again.. If I can't blame it on something else, I'll try upgrading CPU and see if that helps any...
