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.)

Let me preface by saying, I am not so much trying to find a solution to my issue as I am looking for an explanation.

I have a Logitech M510 wireless mouse that was dropped. Now, whenever it is used, the cursor behaves strangely. First, clicking becomes intermittently working until it stops altogether. Before it completely stops working, some of the buttons act as different buttons. For example, the left click starts functioning as the center click. Eventually (after about a minute) the cursor stops moving altogether.

The weirdest part of it all is any other mouse connected to the computer (trackpad, Bluetooth, wired) does the same thing as long as the M510 is connected. As soon as the M510 is turned off, all other pointing devices act normally.

I am a little lost as to how some obvious hardware damage in the M510 mouse could cause such profound effects in the software. Does anyone know why this happens?

I am new to Win XP, and am having a problem with my mouse. If I let the cursor rest on a menu item, folder, etc. for a few seconds, it behaves as though I had clicked the mouse button, causing things to happen that I did not want. Is this normal? Can it be changed?

A:Mouse behavior in XP

HI, Got to folder options in the control panel and it will give you a list of options in regard to mouse clicks.

If you are new to XP I would persevere with the start menu as you will get use to it and once you do it is rather neat.

If you don't want to try to get use to it go to the Start Menu, right click, click on properties, then click on advance and once again there is a menu. Uncheck open when I hover mouse box. Peace Mal

I have an older Microsoft optical mouse. Recently, the buttons on it started acting odd. At first I would have to smash down hard on the buttons for them to work. Then the following day I had to alt tab to a different window and back for them the buttons to work.

So figuring it was just some crud that got under the buttons I poured some rubbing alcohol on to the mouse. After that the right mouse button works fine its just the left mouse button that doesn't work.

I was hoping the forum here had some suggestions on what I could do, or tell me I just killed my mouse by pouring rubbing alcohol on it. Thanks.

A:Odd mouse behavior

Hello Coramoor0 and welcome to TSF,

When you say "Switching Windows"... Do you mean putting focus on that particular window so you can input text, or operate buttons?

Do the other standard mouse functions work properly?

Also, are the mice you used USB or PS2?

One last question, do you have any other pointing devices or HID's installed? (human interface device... keyboard, mouse, trackpad, gamepad, etc.)

My mouse behaves erratically about 2-3 hours into a computing session then locks up. If I reboot, it is active for a few minutes before lociking up again. I have keyboard access to my computer , just no mouse function. I have not added any new programs before the problem surfaced. Since then I have updated the mouse driver but problem persists. I'm using Win 2000 with >500k ram. Both manufacturer (dell) and microsoft service people have not been helpful. Since everthing works fine for a few hours I'm thinking heat problem. Any other suggestions - fixes? Thanks

If it's wireless, there may be your problem. I've been to LAN parties with my wireless stuff and we all end up going back home for wired stuff.

Try a different mouse, if wireless turn off anything that may interfere with it (other wireless stuff). Try replacing the batteries (if wireless).

New default behavior in Windows 10 bs win8 was that I used to be able to scroll an inactive window by hovering my mouse over it. And this was great.

After thinking something was wrong for a while I've finally realised why my window management is so iffy. I've noticed that the inative window I'm hovering over will now automatically turn into the active window after a few seconds of hovering on it, displacing everything else which overlaps it.

E.G. File Explorer window positioned partly over firefox. before I could scroll down the inactive FF window with my mouse wheel, but now the FF window automatically becomes the active window, hiding the File Explorer window.

Is there a fix for this?

Recently when I use my mouse, the cursor goes flying off in a different direction. I can be right in the middle of creating a mask in Photoshop, or simply perusing websites in a browser and "zing!", off it goes. Now that is my (Old style) wired mouse. My wireless mouse is acting lethargic and, well, for lack of a better word, queasy. It wiggles and acts strange. What in the world is going on?

A:Mouse behavior

Here are a few tips:

Check the surface the mouse is used on. Is it clean? Smooth? Consistent surface texture?

Is the bottom of the mouse dirty? Clean the sensor, and the feet.

Does your wireless mouse need new batteries?

Are these old mice? Even though the last a long time, they don't last forever.

Can you test with a different mouse? Maybe borrow someone elses for a few minutes.

Okay here's the basics, I logged on this morning and when I clicked on my internet browser my mouse (with the left mouse button acted as if I was clicking on the right button, HOWEVER after I system restored it now when I use the start menu (where the mouse works fine) clicking anywhere on any program just makes it gray out as if i had clicked on another program, and I am forced to use my keyboard alone as my only navigational tool. Also the scroll wheel is not working.

Edit: okay when i go to windows task manager and click on that a few times it goes back to semi-normal but I have to minimize and maximize the window now before anything will respond...... oh and my scroll wheel and my right click won't respond

I've looked through the hardware forum but I think this is a little different from other problems I've seen regarding the mouse. Anyway the software is Windows 2000, the hardware is HP. HP computer Vectra VL with a HP mouse. The system no longer detects the mouse. Cold reboot or either a restart doesn't work. I tried switching out the mouse with another mouse but that didn't work either. When I restart it boots up but doesn't recognize the mouse. Rebooting does take me to a screen where it says mouse not detected wait a few seconds. Anyone got any ideas?

A:Odd mouse behavior when right clicking

Try this first: go into your mouse setting by clicking Start, click Control Panel, click Classic View, click Mouse.

When the mouse properties window opens, make sure that under the ?Right button? heading, this shows up in the drop-down: Right-click (default). If there is something else in that drop-down, that might be what?s causing the problem. If it?s already set to Right-click (default), then we have another problem and can address that.

When I left click to 'open in a new tab' a web page from a link I get the new tab open plus the current browser switching to the url as well! It's very annoying.
Not sure if its the mouse driver, the browser (Chrome) as it seems to have updated , or a nasty (browser hijack?) or the mouse itself.
Malwarebytes finds nothing nasty, i've run a defrag on the off chance that might help but still occurring.

Occasionally my mouse pointer drifts across the screen without the mouse moving at all. It is a wired ms scroll wheel mouse. Occasionally the scroll feature kicks in and a web page will scroll rapidly up and down when I move the mouse. Multiple clicks and mouse movements usually get it under control.
The drift movement runs right to left and then stops before the edge of the screen.
Sound familiar to anyone? An annoyance mostly. Not in any particular program.

Is there a fix?

I strongly suspect malware since mouse problems began about same time pc was infected with malware and FakeHDD virus. Avira, Ad-aware, and Malwarebytes all report clean system now, however mouse still acts erratically (a simple click will often act as double-click opening multiple windows wherever the pointer was resting, drag and drop almost impossible to accomplish, etc).

I booted to safe mode, uninstalled mouse drivers, then using keyboard deleted mouclass.sys and mouhid.sys. I then scanned for hardware changes and allowed drivers to be reinstalled. Is this the correct way to reinstall the mouse drivers? Where is the system reinstalling the drivers from? The mouse behavior is still present, so, assuming malware is the culprit, I am not confident that I am performing the reinstall correctly.

fyi: mouse configuration doesn't seem to be connected with the erratic behavior.

Another thought. Weird mouse behavior only happens on the computer that uses a USB to PS/2 adapter. That computer had no PS/2s for mouse and keyboard. Needed the adapter to connect to the KVM. Could that be the cause of erratic behavior? Have not had the problem since a recent reboot.

Right now I have 3 displays sitting side by side. The only way that I know to move the mouse from one to the other is by moving the mouse horizontally from one display to the other. But what if I stacked my displays?

Lets say I got a 4th display and stacked them by 2's. Is there a way to get those 4 displays to act as one large display in the sense that I could move the mouse horizontally and vertically to get the cursor to where I want it to be?

Let me explain.

When Windows starts up, I have my default cursors. If I go to personalize->mouse pointers, my custom pointers are already up. Apply isn't even an available option, as if the computer thinks that my cursors are in use. When I click 'ok' my cursors come up.

In the last 48 hours or so, my optical mouse is showing bizzare behavior, especially if I am playing free cell and I try to move cards by clicking on them. Also, when I click on certain menu buttons on some web sites, it also takes several attempts to open the menu with the mouse. Is this a hardware problem or is it in windows settings? Should I try replacing the mouse or could it be something else. Any help with this issue would be most appreciated. Thank you Kevin

So this is just weird.

1) When I come out of sleep, the keyboard acts like my ALT key is depressed. If it press alt a few times normally it clears up and behaves as normal. No UAC and sleep works fine

2) When playing games, if I have UAC turned on the mouse gets stuck accelerating further and further until a mere tap of the mouse results in the game's camera spinning wildly 360 degrees over and over. When I disable UAC the mouse behaves just fine

I recently upgraded my computer and I am using the same kb/mouse as my old one. I have 2 sets of both actually and swapping between the PCs doesnt help, never had this on my old win7. My old pc never had UAC on, but I was giving it a another try this time around

A:Weird Alt key sleep & UAC mouse behavior

Well for #2 I'm not sure if you mean that weird mouse movement happens if you have UAC turned on at all or if as you're playing the game and the UAC window pops up, THEN it starts acting strange. Assuming you have the latest drivers for the mouse, I'm not sure what could cause that. And it happens to all games whether they're in fullscreen or not?

#1 is extremely interesting. If it isn't wireless, maybe something's just wrong with it, heh. Try it on another computer perhaps and see how it works?

Sorry, forgot the bottom part of your post altogether. So you have two of those mice and two of those keyboards, and each act up in the same ways? Also, could we know what you upgraded exactly? And even if you turned UAC off, you say that the keyboard would still do that regardless, or am I misinterpreting you?

Hi everyone!
Like you I have been having all the same touchpad issues. At first I thought it was ESD and troubleshot that for a few days. I finally concluded that it had nothing to do with ESD and moved on to possible driver issues. I installed every driver pack I could find, modified them, turned off driver signing in order to install the OEM drivers, used Windows 7, 8, 8.1, Ubuntu etc... but to no avail.
From the onset, some sort of physical problem seemed to be the most logical conclusion. The question was just what! I couldn't believe that synaptics could make such an aweful touchpad that was incapable of actually working. I made the assumption moving forward that the issue had to be caused by something small. During my last clean install of Windows 8.1 I noticed that the default windows driver caused the touchpad to be EXTREMELY sensitive. You'll notice that once you install Dell's latest driver the cursor movement calms down considerably. The touchpad is still extremely sensitive, the driver is just taking all that raw input and generalizing it into a more manageable cursor. Conclusion, the touchpad is too sensitive.
I compared this premise with my previous experiences and found that in large part they supported each other. My touchpad would typically freak out after a lot of 2 finger scrolling or a lot of gesture movements.  In fact it would stop working entirely if I blew hot breath on it. Conclusion, I needed to desensitize/protect the touchpad... but how!?
In my first attempt I simply took clear packing tape and completely covered the touchpad. Not expecting anything I ran my finger across it and found that the cursor movement felt much more controllable. I used it for 30 minutes like this with only a few minor issues. (My touchpad ALWAYS freaks out within the first 15 mintues so for me this was a big deal!) I laid a few more layers of tape down and the functionality kept getting better and better. Since I was getting better performance with more layers of tape and because clear packing tape doesn't look great stuck to your laptop I wanted to find a better solution. I needed a thick tough plastic that I would stick to the surface of the touchpad and that didn't require me to use multiple layers of it. Conclusion, use 3M Laminating plastic.
In this second attempt I disassembled the laptop and removed the touchpad from the palm rest area. I used a Magic Eraser pad with a little water and very little soap to clean the surface of the touchpad. After it was clean and dry I cut an oversized square piece of laminating plastic and placed the touchpad face down on the sticky side of the plastic. I then took a razorblade and carefully trimmed off the excess by tracing around the edge of the touchpad. The result was a perfectly sized piece of plastic on top of the touchpad. I reinstalled the touchpad in the palm rest and reassembled the computer. (Please take note that there is a bit of grounding wire tape on the rear of the touchpad that must be reapplied during installation.)
I've been using it like this for 3 days now with ZERO problems!!! I hope Dell takes notice of this post and comes up with an actual solution. The black surface of the touchpad is itself just plastic stuck onto the touchpads circuitry using an adhesive. It would seem like the simple solution would be for them to replace it with a thicker more robust piece. One thing I did notice is that the 3M plastic is more rough than the original touchpad surface which makes it hard to drag your finger a... Read more

Hello thank you in advance for the community's assistance I'm experiencing unusual behavior when trying to hold down keys or buttons Specifically while playing a PC game My issue is sporadic and doesn't apply to all keys and persists despite switching out my accessories for backups lying around just to test on buttons/keys behavior mouse/keyboard Unusual down holding and Unusual behavior holding down buttons/keys on mouse/keyboard check My issue is when I hold down the ctrl key or specific buttons on my mouse the game or my PC does not register them as holding the key but rather just pressing it a single time The issue doesn't apply to the primary rt click left click mouse buttons for example though and only to these secondary buttons on the left side used primarily for back forward web browser navigation The problematic buttons keys are ones that I have customized in the keyboard customization via the in game options which could play a large part in this For example I did not like a certain mapping for a function or action and added ctrl as the secondary or primary button press for this action Wanted to see if there was something I could do in the control panel or in one of the mouse keyboard setting programs I have as I don't see anything that jumps out to me in the game settings Logitech mouse is controlled by those settings keyboard is controlled by the Razer suite but as I said I tried different accessories Perhaps something is conflicting or I activated a setting with an unintentional key combo and didn't notice Apologies for the length I try to provide a lot of info in case it helps Thanks

I've been invaded!!! The mouse cursor is quite irratic. When performing a single click on a form, it is sometimes interpreted as a double click. When dragging a form the form doesn't respond or it will respond to the drag sporadically. When attempting to highlight text, image, etc., the highlight doesn't happen or only a partial highlight will occur. It is very annoying which is what I'm sure is the mission of the designer of this bug, virus, trojan, whatever. Also, at the same time this invader changed the format of the system date/time form standard time to military and month/day/year to year/month/day. I've ran the AVG anti-virus program and AVG root toolkit - they've both came up without finding any foreigners. I've ran Spybot and it to came up empty-handed. The operating system on this computer is XP sp3.


A:Abnormal Mouse Cursor Behavior, Date/Time reformatted

System manufacturer and model?

FWIW: System problems such as have (so far) described...may occur for various reasons...malware may be among them, but let's try a few things.

First...I'd like you to run the chkdsk /r command. Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter. Type Y in response to onscreen query and hit Enter. Reboot the system and let the command execute, the system will boot into XP when the command has completed.

Second...I'd like you to enter the BIOS and check the time/date reflected there and ensure that all settings are still as they should be.

Third...if your mouse still behaves erratically, try a different mouse.

Just upgraded from vista to windows 7 on a laptop.

Now when I visit certain wireless sites that are unsecured (such as my home belkin n network)
it asks for a password. If I plug in my belkin g wireless, no asking for password.

What gives? I have never assigned a password to either the home belkin N or the airport express N that I set up at work or the other network at school.
So I can't connect to these wireless nets. I can only connect to the belkin g routers at work or home.

Lately I have been having an annoying problem with my wireless mouse. For some reason the pointer will lag, and be very sluggish and jumpy. I've had this mouse on this computer for about a year and I've had no problem. Out of nowhere this problem is happening. I've tried re installing drivers with no luck. I tried uninstalling intellipoint and re-installing it, but when I tried I got the BSOD, and then it completely disabled my mouse and keyboard so I had to use wired peripherals to go in to safe mode and do a system restore. Now everything is working again, except my mouse is still jumpy.

Thanks for any help.

A:Annoying mouse lag - Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500

Erratic behaviour from wireless peripherals, especially keyboards and/or mice, particularly where they were working correctly before, generally points to a dying battery in the peripheral. Have you tried replacing it? If it is rechargeable, it may no longer be holding charge and will also need replacing.

There is no usb.inf file in the C:\Windows . It works in Windows 8 machine but not in windows 7. other 2.4 Ghz mice work.

I'm just wondering if there are any differences between the two. I have integrated bluetooth on my laptop, so I won't need a dongle for it. I also know bluetooth is slower than wireless usb, but does this have any effect for a mouse?

In terms of performance and accuracy, are there any advantages or disadvantages to either format? Why are bluetooth mice seemingly much less popular with manufacturers?

Thanks a bunch.

A:Any difference between a wireless usb mouse or a bluetooth mouse?

Here's some advantages and disadvantages

Bluetooth you can expect 30 feet distance from the EEE. Wireless IR you can expect from 4 to 6 feet.

Easy to setup and configure
You plug Wireless in and it just works. With Bluetooth , you have to use the command line to set things up, and you have to script it or else every time you boot you'll have to give it all the commands.

The Bluetooth wins this one. The wireless keyboard and mouse use a USB port and do not give you anything else. The Bluetooth adapter uses the same port, but also lets you connect Bluetooth stereo headphones, your mobile phone, etc.

It really depends on what your needs are. If your living room is 12 feet and you want to hook your EEE up to your PC and surf from your lazyboy at the other end of the room, infrared won't do it. If you want the keyboard in front of the standard EEE screen and just want a better one, then the wireless IR is fine.

I had to replace my keyboard after 3 1/2 yrs since the keys were sticking and the letters worn off. I bought the Microsoft Wireless Laser 6000 Mouse with the wireless keyboard. It works great with one problem. If I enable "allow this device to bring computer out of Standby" for either the mouse or the keyboard, the computer never goes into a full standby. The fan is always running and so are some other parts of the computer. If I dont configure the mouse or keyboard that way, the computer will go into regular and complete standby but will need to be turned on with the power button to bring it out of standby. The Receiver is USB so Im thinking the reason the computer doesnt completly power down is due to the receiver needing to be active. Is there a work around or do I just stick with using the power button?

Mouse works fine. When I am using the mouse, and one of the laptops tries to log in on the router, "sometimes" the router tries to assign the same IP address from an existing laptop to the new laptop and it errors out. If I stop using the wireless mouse, I never encounter this problem. Can the wireless mouse be causing the router problem? Or is this just a coincidence?

I started the services a few at a time until I got my internet back.
Everything seemed to work fine for about a day, and then I started getting the double clicks again.
Only now, when I scroll with the wheel, it will advance 2 or 3 lines and then jump back 3 or 4.

My Microsoft wireless mouse, 5000 V1.0 which I did like has had to be replaced. I now have a Logitech Wireless Mouse M215. My question is, can anyone please tell me how I change my computer to register in the Mouse instructions, how to change them from the old mouse to the new one??

Looking forward to your possible answer. Many thanks in advance!
