what kind of mouse are you using ? brand ? wireless ? optical ? what o/s ?

off hand i'd suggest that you try updating your drivers.

Hi Seb Tooms,

Also, check your virucs checker is well uptodate. I've seen somewhere on this site, information about virii causing the mouse to freeze randomly on a pc.

Try removing any software that you installed with the mouse. They are notorious for conflicts,reboot your PC and use as a standard mouse without any bells or whistles. If 3 button you should still have scroll option and really you don't need the mouse to do anything other than point.

See if it still freezes up. If not leave it as it is. I presume you have changed the mouse and previous one worked fine.

Could it be that you are running a few programms when this happens or doing work in a program if so try installing more RAM memory.

I had the same problem with my PC, drove me spare, rebooting solved it for a while. Now my buddy has the same problem and his CD drives disappear, mine also. What's in common, the latest VIA 4.45 chipset drivers I installed them on both. Did you do the same.
