Problem with Invidia GForce Driver

Hello Friends - Happy Christmas and new year to all.
I have recently downloaded the latest driver version 81.95 from the Nvidia Web site.
After installing it my Microsoft Wireless Mouse stopped working at the end of the Windows start up. I think that the mouse was actually still working, but my system had stopped updating its location on the screen.
After rolling back drivers the problem went away.
Has anyone else had similar problems ?

My system spec is as follows:
System Board : Gigabyte Socket A GA-7VRXP – Revision 2.0 VIA KT333
BIOS: American Megatrends (07.00T 05/11/2002)
Processor : AMD Athlon + 2100 (1.74mhz)
Memory: 768mb DDR PC2100 (184 pin DIMMS)
Graphics Card: Gainward (Invidia) GForce 4 TI 4200 with AGP8X
Driver: 71.89 (1/4/2005)
Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition + Service Pack 2
Hard Disk: Barracuda ATA IV 80GB – UDMA100
I would appreciate any help.

The only thing I can think of is there might be a conflict, download the latest Microsoft drivers and try it again, install the mouse drivers first click here

Thanks for your response. I have already downloaded the latest mouse driver (Intellipoint 5.3).
When I reinstalled the graphics driver (81.95) again, everything was OK for sometime, then the next day the mouse stopped moving on the screen again.
I think you are probably right about the conflict, but how do I pinpoint it, and can I fix it ?

Try an older driver version.

Having the latest driver is not nessessary, I am still using 66.93 and it plays all games including the latest ones perfectly.

Thanks for your help. I just thought that it was advisable to have the latest drivers. If this isn't really necessary, I'll stick to my old one as you suggest.
