mouse pointer gets stuck

  jon2 15:56 10 Apr 2005

my mouse pointer as started to get stuck at the top of the screen, it seems to happen when I have been away from the computer for some time, no matter how I try to move it, it keeps on goining back to the top, there is also a small icon by it that as 16: in it, I have to reboot to get back to normal. Any idea's any one.

Are you running up to date antivirus software as this could be caused by a virus.

Possibly a faulty mouse or mouse wire is breaking down, can you substitute it with a known good one to see if it stops ?

You do not mention what type of mouse that you are using, so I will suggest the following.Cordless- Battery power low, requires recharging/replacing. Corded Mouse- A little spring clean click here
