or is this just a glitch, so forget about it??
Is your Mouse USB or PS/2 ??
Either way . . . Sometimes whenever you boot up . . . Glitches do occur . . . And if you reboot they they go away - -- -
But it still can be a problem . . . Perhaps the Driver was corrupted temporarily ??
And when you installed/connected your wireless Mouse The installation Process made things good again??
It could still be a problem - - -It can show up again - --
Just keep tabs on the Mouse --- Reboot if it happens again Keep us posted . . . .
In the meantime Tell us ---USB or PS/2 Or could be Hybrid (USB PS/2 Compatible) - -
If it is a Hybrid - - -Turn it over . It should say (PS/2 and USB Compatible) underside of mouse - -
Also in the booting up process - - - When Windows is being loaded up ---- with the Status bar underneath Windows Logo Splash - - -
The Keyboard will flash the 3 LEDs & turn off ---then your Mouse should turn ---Red LED ON - -
So you can tell if you have a problem at this time as Windows is still loaded ----
PS Sometimes they . . . The mouse gets overworked

Usb is the rectangular connection - right? my connection is circular.
Your Mouse is apparently PS/2 Type
It should be connected to the Green colored PS/2 Port
And the Keyboard probably is PS/2 also
And should be connected to the Purple colored PS/2
These Connections are located on back of your PC
Common Problems Usually Operator Induced Problems
Is that these connections can Loosen UP- or become SKEWED If you have to move the Case of the PC to achieve more working space
Improperly Connected Note that they have Keyways Sometimes they are forced in when all the pins are not Properly aligned Causing 1 of the ACTIVE PINS to have a weak/compromised connection
Generally Connecting/Disconnecting does not cause damage with PC Power ON. . .However . . .It is not good Practice to do so . . . The PS/2 Controller can be damaged by disconnecting /Connecting with Power ON- - -
Here is an Article on PS/2 Connections & PS/2 Devices ( For Information) -
One advantage of having an Optical Mouse [/b]Has its own POWER ON LED[/b]
Read & Understand the Following before taking any action - -If you have any questions or hesitation Post back your questions - - -before taking any actions - - -
Next time after you shut down the PC - - Carefully Inspect PS/2 Connections ---
Keeping an eye on the Keyways & the Color Coding - - when disconnecting So you understand proper keyway alignment when reconnecting - - -
Inspect for bent or broken pins - - - -Note Pins 2 & 6 are inactive . . .(No Connection)
Note there is Plastic Square Guide Pin & a Notched Keyway - - Make sure that they are [b]aligned with both Connector Plug & Receptacle Before pressing in fully . .
Remember [b]Purple = Keyboard Green = Mouse
After Inspecting & connecting the Keyboard & Mouse - - - -Restart PC and verify Keyboard & Mouse are Functioning properly - - -
Post back Results - - -
