The perpetual newbie is stumped yet again.
Last night I tossed my old mouse because it was not moving properly with my hand and not highlighting links when on them. Also would show a circle with a line across it sometimes when I would click on a link.
None of the above was constant.
I replaced it today with a new Logitech LX7 wireless. I installed the Setpoint 2.4a software and drivers from the included cd.
And my mouse is now doing the same thing. Just not as frequently.
So what can I do to fix this problem?
I've got a pc, XP Pro w/SP2.
Thanks.
J.

I'm not being funny but have you cleaned the surface where you use the mouse?

Yeah, I'm a slob. :whistling: :blink:

Yes. I keep my desktop clean. It's wood and I wipe it with my hand constantly to make sure there's no dust. I don't use a mouse pad. I don't think I need one for an optical mouse.
Thanks.

Get an inexpensive mouse pad.

http://www.microsoft...ssExplorer.mspx

Install and run Process Explorer to check whether anything odd is happening unseen [a program/process opening, closing, opening, closing, or high %CPU usage].
Smooth movement of the mouse cursor can be badly affected by such things.

When did the problem start, or has it always done it?

Problem started recently but I'm thinking the old mouse died and the new mouse may not have had a good connection signal as well as I apparently need a pad.
No pad yet but I did enable a shorter signal path with almost no obstruction and it's working better.
Thanks.
