Each time I start up, everything starts Ok, but the mouse is frozen. I restart once, sometimes twice, then Ok.I have 2 mice,& it happens whichever one I connect, ones a Trust250sp wireless optical the other is Tecstorm Optical1 , both PS2.I have XP Pro, 1.2 processor,512 ram &40gig HD. I run through a KVM switch, but it also happens when mouse is connected direct to PC.
Any help would be much appreciated, its v. annoying!!
Cheers, Al.
P.S. I've defragged, ran AVG,Adaware,S&D & MS antispyware.26 gig empty on HD

Run a System file check for a start, you may have a corrupt file

Thanks Curio. i tried this, it took an age, then just finished! Thought I had done it wrong, so ran it again, just run & finished so I assume all is alright on that front! Mice still no better though! Cheers, Al

Uninstall Mouse Drivers and relevant Software, then Reboot and reinstall

Just tried this, to no avail!

Are you loading software for both your Optical Mice at the same time? If so you may have a glitch between the two sets. Do the Mice work OK without any additional drivers/software, just using thosr provided by Windows?

Double check all your connections. Ensure batteries are in good order and the connections are sound. If you still have this problem, all I can suggest is a System Restore to a date previous to these problems occurring.

Just turned off, & restarted- now scrolling works OK!!! Strange things, these PCs!! Many thanks for your help, Curio, it seems OK now, so I'll tick resolved. Any further probs, & I'll try the restore option. Thanks again, Al.

that if you install no other Mouse Drivers you will be OK now. If you change mice, remove all drivers of the previous one before installing the new.Glad to help.
