Hi, I have been using my Intuous pen and Wacom tablet together for a few years with no problems. Now all of a sudden in the last week, it as if it is "sticking" to anything I select (and not letting go). I have no more control over this pen, and it won't select what I want or "click" when I want. I have changed the nib to the straight nib again (no spring), and have gone into the controls to make it less sensitive overall, but I am still having terrible problems. I use this pen for everything (not just drawing), and it's turning out to be dangerously "sticky"- selecting and moving (and deleting) things if I even get close to them! Help! I don't know what to do anymore!

Have you tried pulling the nib out (the end bit you draw with)? It could be that something is sticking the nib further inside the pen than it should, which is telling the pen you are applying pressure. As far as I know there is a little spring inside the pen that the nib pushes on when you touch the pen to the tablet. Perhaps the spring is permanently squished in.
I had the same problem and called Wacom Customer Care at 360-896-9833... I was informed that the pen was defective/ broken and needs to be replaced. This can be caused by being dropped and such. I was told that i should keep the pen on the stand or a eyeglasses case when not in use. If your tablet is under a year old, warranty will cover the cost of the pen with proof of purchase. Other than that, you will need to purchase a new pen (about $29.99 from Wacom & online).
I had a similar problem with Vista which made the pen/cursor freeze just as the tip was placed on the tablet face. The problem turned out to be a Vista setting. I went to Start > Control Panel > Pen and Input Devices. Then in the Pen Options tab highlight the "Press and Hold" pen action and then press the "Settings..." button. In the dialog box that opens uncheck the "Enable press and hold for right-clicking" check box. Hit "OK". Worked for me.
