For some reason my mouse keeps getting stuck. It'll be fine then all of a sudden will stop. Where are the mouse settings on windows xp?

I've cleaned the rollers of the mouse.

Start, Control Panel, Mouse

Is it an old mouse - it might be on its way to heaven

Settings no good for that kind a problem it needs to go in the washing machine.................... Hope you don't take that seriously. the ball needs to go into the sink with some hot water and washing liquid and the rollers three in all have to be cleaned properly. also some switch cleaner from a radio shop, you need to spray some inside then put the ball back after it dry. As above it cheaper to get one without a ball I got a Harry Potter Optical mouse from ebuyer.com and it's the best mouse ever for about £2.50 plus P&P I had a Microsoft Intele Eye it did not last two minutes That cost me about £32

Probably better to turn them off in Services.

Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Administrative Tools, Services.

On the Extended tab, if you click on the name it will tell you what the service does. Right click, Properties and change the Startup Type.
