    Mouse Pointer Freezes

    About once weekly. No pattern detectable. Not due to defective mouse as replacement also freezes. Reboot is required to re-activate mouse.
    [Edited add-on]: Computer has 8 USB plug-ins. Switching doesn't help.

    The only option I can think of in your case is check for updated drivers from mouse manufacturer. So intermittent that a solution might be hard to find.

    You should also check the hardware/administrative section of the event viewer to see if anything related is flagged.
    You can also try uninstalling the mouse from device manager, then boot the computer to alow for hardware re-detection and fresh driver reinstallation.

    Hello...Are you sure that your "OS" isn't "Freezing"? What OS are you running? Regards Fred
