Ive just change my mouse back to PS2 connection but every time i boot up xp the arrow just locks or freezes on the screen.

Problem being i cant unlock it unless i reboot and then only if i start to fiddle (carefull here..) with the mouse. This seems ot resolve the freezing process but i fell like a right dummy doing this.

its a "genius netscroll optical eye PS" mouse running on winxp home.

driver issues anyone?? but which one?
many thsnk

When you say fiddle do you mean with the cable at the PS/2 connection? The port itself could be at fault.

If you have USB ports you can get an USB-PS/2 adapter to connect the mouse (and keyboard).
