I also posted about this in the Malware Removal section, as I'm not sure if this is a spyware issue or a hardware issue. So here's the problem. Last night I was using my computer and it was fine, and all of a sudden the mouse pointer thing freezes on the screen, but the light on the mouse is still on! So I restart the computer, and after a few minutes the same thing happens. I ran a spyware scan and some things were removed but there is no change... Today it was working for a while and freezing very briefly and then working again, but now it's freezing within a few minutes of the computer being turned on. The only solution is to unplug it, then replug it in, which fixes it for maybe 1 minute, or maybe 30 minutes... It depends.
So basically, the mouse pointer is freezing randomly, but the light on the mouse is still on! Ahhh.
Edit: I plugged it into a USB drive at the front, and it was working, but then it froze for 2 seconds and a windows message came up saying that "A device has malfunctioned" or something. And then it started working again! And it's now freezing randomly for 2 seconds.. Maybe I should just buy a new mouse? But then why is it working sometimes and othertimes not..
Thank you for any suggestions!
