Hi All,

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.

Have you tried uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling them from the CD that came with the mouse?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

For a long time, I didn't use Kensington's drivers, but I was getting this problem and the acceleration wasn't what I wanted so I recently installed the driver. So I had the problem before I installed Kensington's driver -- when I was just using the Windows driver -- and I still have it. The only difference is I have more control over the way the mouse responds with the Kensington driver.
