Bought a Optical mouse some time ago but since upgrading from WME to WXP i have a freezing computer
every think on the computer that couldn't work with XP was replaced but i was still left with the computer locking up so i went back to the old ball mouse no more lock up's i didn't know the mouse
could cause this problem but there you are you find somthing new every day.

It could be the mouse lead has a broken wire, that would cause the problem. The most likely place is where the lead enters the mouse. If you're handy with a soldering iron, open up the mouse and cut out a section.
