My corded Logitech mouse freezes after about 15 minutes (win xp pro). I tried two other mice (one of them wireless) and the same thing happens. Can't find anything in the way of a virus. What can I do?
I did download and install the latest Logitech driver and I did go back to a restore point, it does not make any difference.
The mouse buttons still work but the pointer can only be moved within a 1/4" square. Rebooting solves the problem for 15 minutes. I don't think it's hardware related, it happens with any other mouse that I connect. I also ran a bunch of spyware, adware and virus programs, nothing. Clean as a whistle!
I did a test yesterday. I turned the PC on and let it idle for 12 hours. When I woke it up, the mouse still worked fine. Then I started working with the mouse and, lo and behold, the pointer stopped after about 15 minutes. It almost looks like it counts and shuts down after a certain number of movements.
I also opened the case to make sure it's not a heat-related problem but that does not seem to be the case. Any new thoughts?
I have reinstalled the mouse software (MS Intellimouse) but that still does not allow to uninstall it. The lack of a remove button in the Add/Remove window seems to be on purpose. The "Remove" button is missing on my other PC too, no mouse problems there.
What's "housecall online"?
BTW, I've run the latest version of SpyBot, clean as a whistle!
Have you tried going into Device manager and disabling the mouse in there?
If you disable the mouse there then reboot it will find new hardware and reinstall it, when it asks for drivers point it to the new mouse drivers you have.
Device manager : control panel to system to device manager then mouse or other pointing devices and right click on the mouse and disable it. then restart your system.
I have been able to install the new mouse plus the driver. The problem is that there are still two other MS Intellimouse packages that I can not uninstall. That's where all my mouse problems may origin.
