This is the Feature Request-forum, You should probably try in the appropriate Mac- or DOS-forum.
Anyway: Have You restarted Photoshop, verified the Blend Mode-, Flow- and Opacity-settings of the tools, and if all that didn’t help trashed Your prefs?

John Joslin found the error. I had accidently put the Wacom mouse on the
Wacom tablet. The tablet was not on my desk at the time, and did not see
that. Everything is back to normal. Thanks for suggesting the
Windows-forum. This was the first time I ever used forums, this was new to
me. Thanks very much for taking the time to address my problem.
A very grateful, Leonard
