Just installed cordless kb/mouse but is this right

Logitech kb/mouse works but the cursor keeps blinking when online and the red light on the underside of the mouse stays on even when pc is shutdown,this is my first cordless set are these 2 things normal.

Don't have a blinking cursor but do have the red light on all of the time. I find that my mouse gets through batteries. There have been previous threads on battery consumption and recommendations about other batteries.

I found that a plain black mouse pad was better than one with a white logo on a blue background as with the latter the cursor would suddenly jump to a corner of the screen.

The lazer (the red light from the underside of the mouse) is always on for me, unless I don't use the Keyboard and Mouse for over about 5 hours

As for the "cursor keeps blinking" bit, I am not sure what you mean...

When i say blinking i mean it dissapears for a fraction of a second then reappears it does this all the time when online but its calm when i am offline.

Sounds like some sort of "nasty"

Suggest you to do a full Virus, Malware, Adware, etc.. scans

stays on.

My Belkin cordless mouse has a miniature switch on the underside! Essential for minimising battery use I would suggest.

If your keyboard is also battery operated maybe someone else would like to comment.

Done the scans no nasty reported also on the underside of the mouse just the connect button no switch.

No switch on the bottom of my Logitech mouse either.
Are you on a wireless connection when on the internet?
Have you changed to mouse pointer scheme. The 3D-White is quite pleasant. See if it blinks then.

No i am not on wireless broadband,i will look at the
mouse settings again and the mouse pointer scheme.Its only day 2 with this new setup so still getting used to the workings of it.

Just been to the logitech support website and there is a software update for my desktop set its a full 12 months ahead of the version i have but it is a large download 47 MB,should i go for it.
