Rome Total war help

Ok, I haven’t played Rome in a while, so i decided to start it up today. A weird thing happened. When the main title screen loaded up, whenever i moved the mouse it would ghost, until there are little mice all over the place. It basically just left everything that i did (if i put the mouse over exit, it would leave the description up. that kinda stuff). Ive already (un)installed it and patched it, so what else can i do?

Check your video drivers. May be an error on that level. First, see if theres any new versions available. If not, uninstall your current drivers and reinstall them.
