    Mouse freezes (XP SP1)

    I have Windows XP and obtained a Microsoft IntelliMouse with Office XP. I have had both for many months. The last few days, I have had problems with my mouse freezing up FREQUENTLY. Now it is happening every few minutes resulting in a number of reboots a day. Luckily, I am a big believer in using the keyboard.

    In Device Manager, it shows no bangs for the mouse driver. I have deleted it and reinstalled it to no avail. Could it be the actual device itself? I have never had a problem with a mouse (other than a dirty wheel and this one is an optical mouse). I have followed the troubleshooting guide as much as I can. (It requests that I unplug the device and then double-click on the driver in Device Manager. Try that one!!!!!!) Also, when I attempted to reload the driver from the disk, I got a message that the driver was not compatible with my version of Windows. I could not find a newer driver from Microsoft and question the message because I used the driver to install the mouse in the first place with no problems.

    Anyway, does anyone have a solution for me?

    I've had similar problems recently with many causes. What has worked for me was to run WinDoctor (Norton Utilities 2002) which identified a few registry problems. Allowing Norton to fix them solved the problem. This has worked a few times. If you don't have Norton, perhaps a scandisk and registry clean might solve your problem. Good luck.

    When nothing else works you might try using System Restore { Restore System To An Earlier Date } Has worked for me several times in the past for all sorts of problems. Do you know how to use System Restore?
