Hi, All
My cursor has been freezing and/or disappearing compleatly! The only solution seems to be rebooting the computer, wich of course causes me to lose whatever I was doing. My computer is a VPR Matrix 2020 running Windows XP Home Edition. The mouse is a Logitech Optical with a PS2 (<correct spelling?) connection. Both computer and mouse are over 5yr.s old. Any suggetions (including replace mouse) gratefully acceptsd.
Thanx, deepsix

Have you ever cleaned the mouse? Try uninstalling the mouse and reboot the computer and let Windows redetect it. Can you get another cheap mouse and try it?

I'm guessing that you have checked to be sure that the mouse if properly plugged in?

Is the date and time of the computer staying accurate?

I understand that the connection is a PS/2 type, but is this via a USB to PS/2 adapter? If it is try plugging it in a USB port.

Have you tried changing the pointer scheme to see if it makes any difference?

Start> Control Panel> Mouse, click on the Pointers tab, under Schemes click on the down arrow to open the menu and choose a different scheme, then click on Apply, then OK.
