    Default MOuse issue?

    Beginning to think not.
    What happens is, after a while, days, mouse starts to speed up - that is the movement across the screen. To the point it's annoying and hard to control.

    I can cure it 2 ways:

    adjust mouse speed in settings (but it comes back and I end up having mouse speed turned down to nothing)

    Unplug it, plug it back in again

    This happens with all mice, all USB ports.
    The USB ports are just fine with keyboard in them, printer and so on.

    So beats me.....I bought a new mouse recently too, fancy one with it's own driver and control software, same thing. So that sort of eliminates driver issues.
    Removed and reinstalled them anyway - the Windows standard one as well as the new mouse one.

    Didn't help.

    Not the surface it's been used on?

    The surface mines used on has gone shiny and once Black has the particle board base showing and in certain places is erratic sometimes

    If I put Newspaper under the Mouse no problems

    We have replaced all those cable mice with wireless mice. Don't have to yank cables from awkward places now.

    Thinking about the two printers next.

    lurking.

    No, as I said, it's fine once I replug it in, then slowly over the next couple of days the speed increases again.
    It's a weird one.

    Maybe you have bought a Mighty Mouse! You should have got a Mickey Mouse.

    I'm just trying out a cheap wireless mouse at the moment, not bad for $10, NB _ the dongle is hidden in the mouse and not loose in the box.

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    Your dongle should be in your pants where it belongs.

    Can't believe it took me so long.

    It takes a few days because Granddaughter is only here weekends.
    She pushes the DPI button - located under the scroll wheel.

    Duh. LIke I didn't think of the DPI button!!

    Oh well. Problem solved, I fell suitably thick now.

    Yeah, it had the symptoms of an induced fault & they're always the hardest to find.
