First hint of a problem was with the mouse - which failed to have any impact on a link i.e. although it looks like it will close a prog when hovering over say the 'x' - it has no impact. (It does highlight item though). This is the same with most actions.
Then I had a problem with Kaspersky which showed databases were corrupt. (This I have fixed with the help of these forums).
However, the mouse problem has returned. In addition, if I try to drag a page, it do so 'jerkily' or not at all.
I can do these things, after a fashion, with my touch screen.
Any ideas please? Using Windows 7, mouse is cordless - I have tried new batteries.
Go to Device Manager - Mice & Other Pointing Devices - right click - select "Update Driver Software"
You may also like to go into Control Panel - Mouse and check settings.
Try these - Buttons Tab - Double Click Speed - set to FAST - Pointers Tab - Tick in both "Enable Pointer Shadow" & "Allow Themes to Change Mouse Pointers"- the Pointers Options Tab - FAST - tick in "Enhance Pointer Position" & "Hide Pointer While Typing" - then Wheel Tab - Vertical Scroll - I use 5 lines - Horizontal Scroll - I use 3 (personal choice here) then Properties - make sure YOUR mouse is there and Device is working properly.
