Windows 7 issues! It taps rather than draws! Help!
Ok, this is really starting to bug me.
Every time Im on Photoshop on a machine running Win7, rather than the nice, smooth response i get with XP- you know, you touch a spot on the canvas and it just draws a smooth line from where you started- it just taps and a little circle bubbles out from that point, telling me i've just left clicked. If I want to draw a line, it starts drawing about half a centimeter from the point where I actually started, and with a nasty sharp point radiating from that area. Not good at all when accuracy is a must.
Anyone know how to get rid of this problem? Its reeeealllyyy annoying, and is making using my wacom a pain, when up until now I've loved it.
Im using a Bamboo Fun (yeah, laugh at me, I'm poor damn it!!! ), and don't know how to fix this issue. Help if you can!!!

You probably have to disable some of the "Tablet PC" functions in win7, since they are taking your strokes for commands, and generally get in the way
2 things you can do;
Run > services.msc., locate Tablet PC Input Service and deactivate it so it doesn't start
or to kill more of it;
Controlpanel > Programs & Functions > Windows Features, turn off the tablet services there and reboot
Personally, while now the handwriting tools etc. are dead, I still get annoying bubbles, and I think it is messing up 3ds max for me :/ I do not have issues with PS though as it seems to have the ability to trounce windows' madness.
I have seen a few threads of this about but I can't really make a final solution myself.

I wrote to Wacom about this when I first upgraded to Windows 7 and they sent me the following:
This animation is a Windows 7 feature. The only solution we have been able to find is a registry modification, as otherwise you lose your inking capabilities.
You can rename the attached file ripplebgone.reg and double click the file then restart your computer.

I can't figure out how to attach the file though, but if you contact Wacom, they'll send it to you. Hope this helps!

Thanks, I'll go email wacom and demand justice... in a nice way, of course
On that note, any idea what email address you sent this too? my dialup is hating the wacom site and i cant find where the contact email is
