Does anyone know where I can get a mouse driver, after cleaning my system because of a trojan NO mouse will work. The USB port will not even pick it up, I have tried both my wireless mice and one mouse with a cord and none of them will work now.

I have been looking for a driver to download or whatever I need, but I all I get is the whole driver detective thing and buy this and that. Any help would be appreciated. I have been to gigaware site and nothing and I have been to Logitech site and nothing. Thanks for your time and help.

Installing the Microsoft Intellipoint 5.0 mouse software should give you the basic mouse drivers needed for any mouse.


If this does not work then you still have some part of a trojan that stops the mouse software from working. Then try this.

You may need to have to clean up Device Manager and remove any "ghost" /
unknown devices from your system. Save the following into a batch (.bat) file
and tel Device Manager to "Show hidden devices..."

---------- Copy from after this line --------------------

set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
cd %SystemRoot%\System32
start devmgmt.msc

---- Copy the above lines--------------------------

Save to a standard text file

Rename the file to "cleandm.bat"

Just click on this file

As for the drivers, you will only have to remove the "ghost" or "unknown"
devices. All other USB devices that are working will not be removed. Drivers
that were "added" will not be removed.

Generic USB mouse drivers are built into XP and the hardware needs to be
correctly detected in order to let XP install the correct drivers.
