I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: USB mouse problem

Download USBDVIEW installed it and run it as the Admin. Now you look at all the disconnected USB devices. Those devices need to be removed. Do not remove connected devices such as external devices. Make sure there are not USB devices attacked except for keyboard and mouse. Since your are having mouse issues then use the internal one. Once done reboot the system. Then when you bootup again try the mouse again.

Hi guys New here so I hope I'm not out of line asking for help and that I'm asking correctly I've exhausted my own ideas on this but the problem is driving me IN SANE THE ISSUE When using an external USB mouse with my ASUS Win laptop the mouse randomly lifts up and re-clicks while clicking or while dragging despite the button remaining consistently depressed resulting in selection of the wrong objects inadvertent double-clicks and incorrect dragging From what I can tell this affects only the left click and not the right WHAT I'VE TRIED Laptop touchpad - no problem Everything works fine with the built-in touchpad Another mouse - same problem These are wired mice so it's not a battery or connection issue Another USB port - same problem in all four There's no visible issue with the motion of the mouse cursor so it seems to be communicating OK via USB Safe Mode - no problem from what I can tell The wired USB mouse seems to click and drag as normal in Safe mouse.

Touchpad OK. Mouse OK in Safe Mode. having the problem with the mouse or performing the same actions without the problem with the trackpad WHAT I CANNOT FIGURE OUT What Mouse problem: Any external mouse. Touchpad OK. Mouse OK in Safe Mode. haven't I ruled out What else could be causing the issue The problem came on suddenly after about a year but I can't pinpoint the moment because I didn't use an external mouse for a while maybe eight weeks and when I plugged it in again the problem had appeared In that time I don't think I had installed any new software or made significant voluntary changes to the PC As a designer illustrator it's frustrating to use the touchpad for detailed vector work so I'm pretty crippled by the loss of the external mouse Does anyone have any ideas at all about what I've overlooked Even a clever workaround would be really helpful if there is such a thing I'll be very grateful Thanks

Hey mate, and welcome,

Possible problem:
1. Mouse itself is bad. Either the button itself or internally
2. Driver is not at its best

Going to the mouse manufacture website to download the most recent driver for your Windows 7, either 32 or 64 bit. If it doesn't work, try without any driver (so that windows driver takes over).

I am new to these forums so I have no idea where to post this.

Anyways, here's my problem, every few or so seconds my mouse cursor will have the spiral circle and it will act as if I clicked onto the toolbar at the bottom. For example, if I am typing an assignment, I will have to constantly click on the text box to start typing again. This is a very serious and annoying problem.

Please help me!

The problem started out of nowhere.I have windows xp and I noticed that my whole computer is been running kinda choppy.anything that has audio will skip,including music,aim sounds,videos,video games,anything in general.also my mouse moves choppy.It will pause for a second and then start moving again with no problem and then pause again.The mouse mainly moves choppy when I load up certain programs.
I tried scanning my computer with spybot ad-aware and avg antivirus and it found nothing.I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Realtek ac97 and that didnt work either.
I have a cable modem so I know its not my internet connection speed.
I had my computer over a year and it was running with no problems.I started having these problems about 3 or 4 days ago.
Can somebody please help me fix these problems with my computer?

A:Mouse problem = looking for new mouse

I'm the same when it comes to mice; I like mine wired mostly. As it happens i'm on the hunt for a new mouse myself at the moment. My front runner's the Trust GXT 32 gaming mouse, even though i'm not a big gamer.

Wired, 9 buttons, looks great, 2400 dpi, laser...and only 15 ($10)...For the money alone it's worth a try.

Have a Logitech Wireless Optical Mouse M/N M-R0006
Works just fine; no problems.

Have a new radio program that controls a sw radio.
It uses the right-hand button to change frequencies.

Cannot get it to work.
Apparently nobody else using the program has any problems.

There is nothing to "configure" in the program.
No additional drivers apparently required, etc.

So, what might be my problem please ?

I looked in their Setpoint Software, and also what come up in W10 for configuring the Mouse, but I see nothing that looks applicable. Again, the right hand button works fine for everything else.

Must be related to "some" Mouse setting I would imagine.

If anyone has any thoughts on this, would be most appreciative.


A:Mouse Problem: Right Hand Button Problem ?

Hello Bob,

Your "System Specs" show you have Windows 7 installed? If so, you may want to update this, or post this at our Windows Seven Forum site.

Check in Device Manager of conflicts. Make sure you expand the view there to show "Hidden Devices."

Please, provide a link to the SW Radio software you downloaded, we would like to take a look at it.

You could try uninstalling the SW Radio software, then reinstall.

If you are running Windows 10, the SW Radio program may not be fully supported. Third party software which has not been certified by Microsoft may not always function properly.

Hope this helps,

As the title says I'm having an issue with my mouse, although I don't believe it is my mouse because I have tried 2 different mice with the same problem. The cursor will randomly move , randomly rightclick , randomly think I'm holding down the scroll , as well I will be unable to click on anything. That is until I hit CTRL + ALT + DEL then it will magically work again for a short time.
Things I have tried; rebooting , uninstalling/reinstalling drivers , changing usb ports , switching mice, cleaning registry, as well as virus scanning (malwarebytes and avast both show up with nothing)

I am running Vista home premium 64bit

Any help would be extremely appreciated

Just to add, This started happening around 3 days ago randomly , visiting my standard sites , no downloads / installs

Im having this strange mouse problem. When I start win2K the mouse starts to act strange. It moves different and it starts clicking by it self. But if I goto hardware and remove the mouse and reboot, it will be fine, but it will ask me to reboot because it found new hardware. I just say no. and it will work fine. But if I reboot the same problem happens. What should I do?

my optical mouse is giving problem.
in last two years i changed mouse twice.
problem is : recently, if i click single, it actually clicks twice thus instead of selecting an application it runs the application.
all mouse properties are ok.
what precautions should i take for an optical mouse.

A:mouse problem

All mice will one day fail, however getting a quality one will most propably make them last longer. Logitech mice are quite fine, it seems. Yet, I've used the cheapest wireless optical mouse that was available 3-5 years ago when I bought it with no issues at all til this date. (I've used other mice when playing, so it won't run dry at an awkward moment.)

Ive got a logitech Multi Media Mouse,and the problem is my mouse pointer has a tendancy to go flying off the screen

Also,on the mouse is a button which when is pressed will open WMP.

Whats happening is ill be working away and WMP will open up on its own and the volume goes right up.

Its like somethings interfering with it.

Ive tried the crappy standard mouse and i dont experiance any of these problems,which is why i feel it is mouse related.

The wireless adaptor is a USB stick which is plugged into the back of the tower.

Any ideas ?

I have a Dell Dimension 4400 that I got a few years back that came with an optical mouse. For some odd reason lately the mouse I have keeps turning itself off somtimes when i move it, the red light turns off but it's fixed by unplugging it and plugging it back in, but then it happens again, so sometimes I have to keep unplugging and replugging, sometimes it won't happen at all but it at least happens five times a day even more sometimes when I'm trying to do alot of stuff, what's the deal?

I've been having a problem with my mouse the passed couple of days, I'm not sure what the cause. Sometimes when I close a window out, the window behind it will close also, or sometimes when I single click it's like a double click (i.e. a program will open with one click) is there anyway to figure out what the problem is?

Hi kura
It could be dirt in the mouse button contacts. The easyest way to see if its the mouse causing your problems is to try a different mouse. You can get a new one pretty cheaply.

First of all I just want to say I've tried diffrent mouses and there is no drivers to download to them.
Atm I'm useing a Microsoft Basic Optical Mouse.
Here is my problem:

The pointer,for no reason, slides around the screen like it had a life of it's own. It especially like's the top right- and left corner.
It doesn't really sound like a big problem but it is when you are playing games like Counter Strike and BF2.

Hi, I use a Trust GXT25 mouse and it works perfectly. Yesterday, I got an Xbox 360 Wireless reciever, plugged it in, installed it and everything worked fine. However, when i restart the system, the mouse cursor doesnt show up. The mouse is powered, indicated by the lights, but the cursor doesnt work/aint visible. The cursor becomes visible only when i plug the mouse out and back in. If i remove the wireless reciever and restart the PC, the mouse works normally, so there must be an issue with the reciever conflicting with the mouse. What should I do? Im running Windows 10

A:Problem with mouse

I would assume it's the mouse driver, or the Xbox receiver driver. I had a somewhat similar issue where my laptop would not show the mouse after restart, hibernate, wake up from sleep, etc and the screen would flicker. Fixed by reinstalling display drivers and mouse drivers, so I'd try that before anything else.

Hello all,

I don't know whats up but my G9 Mouse is now showing a blue square on screen when I press the middle mouse button down to scroll pages, it used to show a circle with 2 arrows within one facing up the other facing down if I remember rightly.

Now its just a blue square, its uptodate software and driver wise, so I really do not know what else to try, I just tried setting the wheel to a different option, it is currently set to Autoscroll, but nothing else makes the problem stop and go back to how it was.

I am stuck and if anyone knows why this is I would be very grateful

Did you install the drivers that came with the new mouse or did you just plug it in and let windows install the drivers? Is the plug on your new mouse a USB or a serial connector. Have you messed with any of the settings in the control panel/Mouse? Please post back with this information so that we are better able to help you.

Hello all,

I am using Windows XP on an AMD XP 2700+
I have 1GB RAM

The problem is while using my optical mouse I sometimes get a jump in the cursor. For instance. When moving my mouse around the pointer will suddenly shoot to the bottom of the screen. It does this quite frequently. This is annoying when playing video games. The problem happens all the time. I have an IBM optical and Microsoft optical and it happens to both mice. The problem happens while moving my mouse in video games and during normal windows operations, esentially all the time. Could this be a driver problem? I don't think so. I use the updated drivers from the respective sources. (IBM and Microsoft). Please Help.

Hi, im new here so hello to you all.

This is probably a really simple problem to resolve but i can't seem to fix it.

Right well, when i right click on an app or window (my music) etc, and hold down right button and drag it drags the app/window this means when playing some games which require right click to move it moves the game around my monitor. How can i stop right click dragging windows and apps.

A:Mouse Problem, Help please.

Does your mouse have software associated with it? If so check there.
My mouse right click drag only works on icons (Copy here, move here etc) not windows It is left click drag which does windows for me.

You may want to try going to control panel / mouse and changing from left hand to right hand mouse. (Buttons/ button config / switch buttons).

If you have problems installing it try doing it within VGA mode, which is like Safe mode for WIN9x. Good luck.

I'm not sure what's going on with my mouse. When I try to select more then one item on desktop, or anywhere (by left clicking + holding) It won't let me select more then one of anything, file,text,etc. But when I click more then 3 times.. it works, after that it stops working again, then i'll have to click multiple times again to get it working. I can't move windows either nore drag. Is possiably a infection? of something?, I scanned with NOD32 and found some viruses but.. nothing big, then I did spybot, only 2 things and cleaned it. Still having the problem.

A:mouse problem

I'm guessing it's not a wireless mouse (if it is, replace the batteries)

Most likely the USB cable connecting your mouse to the PC has been damaged. This would mean that if you move it a bit in the wrong position, the conection gets broken and the mouse stops functioning. If this is the case, a new mouse would do the trick.

It might also be a problem with your PSU - power supply unit. What kind of PC is it?

Overnight all the programs I had open had closed down.Click to expand...

It is unlikely that a mouse would cause this. More likely it's Windows XP having trouble with the hybernation/sleep functions or programs crashing or anything else really.

BTW, none of my mice survived for "3-4 years", I've had to replace it twice in the last year. It's a good thing they're cheap.

I have a mouse problem. If I click on anything in order to select it, the selected item flickers and often as not doesn't let me click on it because it's no longer "selected." I've got lots of old mice (mouses?) and the same thing happens with all of them.

With my limited knowledge I think it may be the drivers. I'm running Windows 7 Home Basic. Where can I find new drivers? I use a mouse i the shape f a sprts car (a past Xmas gift) and it has no ID of its manufacturer. Can the existing one/s be fixed? How do I remove them prior to installing new ones?

Thanks in advance

A:Mouse problem

Windows uses a generic driver for most mice. So there isn't a new driver.

In any case, it doesn't sound like a mouse or driver issue. Drivers are used to control operation (ie: movement, use of buttons, etc.). Items such as highlighting I believe are a function of the OS.

Hi. I have an HP Pavillion laptop. I bought a Microsoft IntelliPoint 4.1 (wireless optical) mouse for it. I installed this software, and uninstalled the Touch Pad software that came with the laptop. The other day, I dropped the laptop and this fall caused the computer to think that the touch pad was the mouse. Basically, my mouse no longer works, the touch pad does, and the computer thinks that the mouse is still installed and working properly. I have tried uninstalling and restalling the software, but nothing seems to correct this problem. Can anybody help me? I desperately want my mouse back!


A:Mouse problem

Most touchpads enable/disable when a mouse is removed/added. This might be the case - it could be that the mouse connection is damaged and the mouse no longer works - was this a P/S2 mouse or USB - I would suggest trying a new USB mouse and see if that works - borrow any mouse for a test form a friend.

A:Mouse problem

Go to device manager, find all USB devices (including 'hubs), right-click, uninstall. Unplug everything USB from computer, restart (via power button, since mouse/kb won't work).

You should get the "installing driver" balloon on bottom-right when Windows loads. Plug devices in one by one, making sure they all connect and register successfully.

If that still doesn't work, do the above again, but at the shutdown part do this: pull the power plug, clear CMOS (small battery, google it), press power button to clear residual energy, then boot it up and continue.

Just recently, about an hour ago, my mouse pointer froze in place whilst playing WoW. I windowed out and my mouse was still stuck in the same place. I am not able to still use the mouse, I can basically right and left click and that's it.

I'm using a wireless mouse, I've already checked the connection and got some fresh batteries but to no avail. The point is still stuck in the same place.

I broke out an old non wireless mouse and it seems to work just fine, so I dont know if it has something to do with the laser or what.

I don't believe it has anything to do with WoW seeing as I have restarted many times now and it is still stuck on the screen without even running the game.

If anyone has any ideas on what is happening I would appreciate the help.

if it works in safe mode, then there can only be two things: program conflict or a driver issue. If this is a USB mouse, try using a PS/2 adaptor and use the oldskool plug. Vice versa with the PS/2 mouse..

Have a look in Device Manager in in Control Panel in any case and right click on the device then click on Update driver software it wll probably ask whether to search your machine for it or on line choose the online and see what happens.

If it comes up with right driver already installed try the port you were using (USB) with another device and see if the port is working as should be.

Before I say anything, I'd like to note that I've had this problem for about a year but I never really bothered me to get it fixed.

The problem with my mouse is sometimes for no particular reason when I begin to move the cursor around or am moving it, will drift at max speed in any direction, lets say up, and I can't do anything. Then it might move up or down, or left and right really fast for lets say 1 or 2 seconds, then stop. I find this really weird, because it happens occasionally but it does happen. Has anyone else experienced this kind of problem with the cursor just racing in a given direction for a second then stopping. Thanks

Hi Style Mantra, and welcome to TSG.

Sounds like it might be an operating system settings issue. So your post in that forum may be a better choice.

Hi - I've just installed a new Logitech Pilot Optical Mouse and it is not working properly. Generally the mouse is fine but the problem is that, for example, when surfing the net the mouse flickers a lot and often moves to parts of the screen that I have not pointed at. I've tried uninstalling the driver and reinstalling but it has not helped. The driver I'm using is Logi_mwx.exe, file version 9.79.024 - it uses the PS/2 port. Any ideas would be gratefully accepted.

try it on a mouse pad or a sheet of paper, some optical mouses don`t like some surfaces and can`t read their position or movment right.

Two days ago my LogiTech USB Wireless mouse just suddenly stopped working. I was using it when playing LoL (League of Legends), and just went to restroom and when I came back, it's not working anymore. I have thought that maybe it's just the batteries, and I've change it but still not working. I convinced myself that maybe it just died. I bought today a MS Wireless Mobile Mouse 3000, to my surprise it doesn't work. I've checked all my drivers and they we're up to date. If anyone could give me advice on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Have a look in Device Manager to see if your mouse is showing. It could be that your old mouse just gave up the ghost (try it on another pc and see if it works)

Your new mouse may not be installed correctly though I doubt it. Post back with your findings.

I run windows 7 64 bit desktop. My mouse, all of a sudden, decided it's not going to use the right button---right click "computer" and all i get is properties. Same all around. Please somebody, help! Joenamvet

I posted this in Hardware, but I closed it because I feel the majority of users check this forum out the most. Any idea why this happens?
My mouse seems to click when I don't want it to click and scroll when it shouldn't. It seems like there is a delay on it and then it clicks again. I have looked in the mouse properties and I don't see anything out of the norm. Any ideas what's going on?

Is it a ball mouse or laser?
