I have a Intellimouse Explorer.

It has this habit of losing the facility to double click on the wheel every time I re boot,to fix it I have to go into program click on appropriate icon and all is well.

Can we help folks?

Uninstall, unplug then reinstall, making sure you have the latest drivers for the re part.

The Mouse in XP bit is a little more serious. Once these critters get in they're blimmin hard to dislodge and XP attracts critters like flies to a proverbial, do you have a shotgun?

I have a similar problem with my wireless keyboard. After start up I have to open and close the MS Keyboard software before my PC recognizes the Hot keys and other features. Otherwise the PC thinks a basic keyboard is there. I must check out my mouse but it is probably the same.

I think the shotgun is a bit over kill,will lt the cat intervene me thinks.

Mine is not wireless.
Will give the above a go,Ta.

Hmm yes, your probably right, a 32 or a kea gun with heavy shot should be enough to euthanase XP.

Gosh! all of our cats are wireless, not bad on critters all the same tho.

Nope, it wasn't mine :O haven't had the pleasure of one since I was 10 or 11. Lot's of fun was had, for a brief time blowing, inanimate things to smitherines, up in the hills and far away from people I hasten to add.

They weren't always illegal, as long as the barrel was more than 14" IIRC and was there something about high country in the ToU, in fact I didn't realise they are now.
