Hello,

My mouse problem started on my old cordless mouse(Cordless Click! Optical Mouse).
And the problems are erratic mouse movement(would randomly move to any location on the screen), sluggish movement, right and left buttons would automatically engage without physical interaction.
I did every normal solution to fix the problem. Change batterys, plug the receiver in different USB ports, remove the SetPoint software and reinstalling it.
I even found a older software called MouseWare which I installed and didn't do diddly squat.
So I figured maybe its time for a new mouse.
I got new mouse(LX7 Cordless Optical Mouse) and the problem persisted with the same symptoms. But when I plug in an old corded logitech optical mouse everything works fine.

I have a Belkin cordless keyboard and mouse set and mine was doing what yours is. I couldn't fix it using Belkin software but I did find that MS Intellipoint software fixed it. It seems to work for most mice on any system.
You didn't say what OS you are using but the download for XP is here.

Yes I did update the drivers(didn't do anything).
About MS Intellipoint which mouse do I pick? They give you a whole list to choose from.

Which type of mouse did you pick from the list when you were installing the software?

Just a stupid idea here, I had this same issue a couple times over (wireless keyboards, mice, video game controllers, tv remotes, Cordless phones) and one thing I discovered causing it was other wireless/radio signals from another source listed above or in really interesting cases my radio scanners, pagers, and HAMM or CB sidebands. The interferance source must be really close (like right beside the unit) or really powerful (like an emergency services broadcast tower or radio).
.
Most times today IR and radio frequency transmitters and receivers are well shielded from interference but it is always a possibility

No broadcast towers for miles around. Could a HAM operator have a powerful transmitter set up? Isn't there a power limit that HAM's need to follow?

for a HAM radio to make it act up it would have to be in the same room or very close together. Most times its cordless phones or remote controls.

I tried Intellipoint. The sluggish movement and erratic behaver decreased notably but the mouse cursor seemed rather stiff and not the 1000 Dpi smoothness it was advertised as being.

Is this how a 1000 Dpi mouse should look like?
Also with the older corded mouse, should it even look like that?

Thanks for replys
