I don't know why, but is says here click here "A mouse may act up if it is connected to a USB hub. Connect the mouse directly to one of the USB ports on the PC."

There are a number of peripherals which don't like hubs, optical mice are just one of them.

My brother had same prob as he was using an unpowered USB hub - soon as he turned on printer mouse froze. Either plug mouse into sep port or try a mains powered hub


the chassis is to far away,thats why i got the hub for a extension?

No the hub has got power to it!

Just for the mouse plug into a seperate port and use a single connector usb extension lead ? I would still try mains powered hub but other posts seem to indicate mice don't like hubs

Looks like my mains powered hub suggestion was rubbish then !!
