I'm using WinXP Pro SP2 with all the latest updates. Medion laptop w/2GB ram, 160 GB HDD, nVidia 6150, AMD 64 TK-53 dual core 1.7 GHz processors. I have attached a Kensington Orbit Optical Trackball mouse to the USB port. (If only I had a PS/2 port!). Anyway, I set myself up as a user, and when I am running that account, the mouse frequently freezes (but randomly). It will freeze for something like 5 seconds. I can switch to the touchpad and it works fine. I never noticed this in the Administrators account. Any ideas?
I tried using a program called usbmrs11.exe, but it didn't change a thing. So I ended up restoring my hdd to make sure the program had not corrupted any files. I've got the latest software from Kensington. I would sure like for my mouse to work correctly, but I have a feeling that USB mice and keyboards just can't hold a candle to the PS/2 mice and keyboards. You simply cannot connect 500 things to your USB bus like the engineers tell you. (I know it's a theoretical 128 devices, and most of the time, the mouse is the only USB device connected. Thanks.
