Hiya guys

My PC mouse (been installed for a long time now - probably 2yrs +) today started showing weird behaviour - the pointer just disappears and the PC seems to freeze. I added no programs, did nothing new. I googled to check out the driver, reinstalled the software, checked whether the "disappear when typing" alternative in the mouse setup was not selected (and it wasn't).

Funny. No deliberate specific frequency to the disappearance - it happens any time and is soooooooooooo frustrating.

Any ideas? (The FAQ's did not say anything, neither did a search)

IntelliPoint 3.2 is quite old.......what os are you useing ? windows 95 ??

theres often very liitle need for mouse drivers unless you have a muiltibutton mouse.

i suspect its not a driver problem, more likly virus/spyware hogging the pc.

XP

Did a thorough check today (that's what I thought too) - nothing (not even with online scans) and I've got everything so I am pretty sure it's not a trojan/virus

Can you try a different mouse? When you said the PC seems to freeze, do the keyboard shortcut keys such as WinKey+E still work? (WinKey is the bottom key with the MS flag symbol on it).
