next door has a tiny computer which is only 2 months old it has a tiny optical mouse which was ok untill a couple of days ago and it started freezing and locking the computer up so you had to close down by ctrl,alt,delete restart then it would be ok so they left it. they wanted to know how to convert video files so i went in to show them how to use converters and when i converted one it said that there was not enough hdd space so i checked by right clicking the hdd and selecting propertys and it says that the file system is fat 32could that be the problem with the mouse running on a fat 32 system its got xp home with a recovery disc only so couls it be the wrong disc... (sorry its so long.)any help with this would be greatfully recieved../

Have you done a virus-scan and looked for a program called "CrazyMouse" in the add/remove programs option???
