My brush goes absolutely insane in many directions and the only fix is to quit photoshop.

My brush, selection, moving, anything pretty much seems to go crazy. Its better illustrated with this image below. It will work normally for a while, that can be 10 minutes to 1 hours maybe and then out of the blue it happens....brusherrorphotoshop.jpg

What are you using for input devices? Mouse, tablet/pen, etc?

If a wireless mouse, is it battery operated/rechargeable? (Suspecting low batteries/charge) or is it on a reflective surface where the tracking laser is reflecting somehow?

I would try both ways - unplug the Wacom tablet for a while and then switch and turn off the mouse.

See if you can identify which input is causing this.

Also make sure your Wacom drivers are up to date.

However, when I see something of this nature, its normally the physical input causing issue not software related.

Im afraid it seems like a software issue now that I've unplugged everything from wacom tablet to mouse to keyboard to see if it would fix it like you said - I then tried another software and it works absolutely fine there ...but back on photoshop nothing has changed.

Have you tried resetting your preferences? Go to Preferences/General and click the reset button. You'll need to relaunch PS.
