Hello, everyone!

I've begun to have a problem with my mouse. First it was with my Microsoft Trackball Explorer with currect software and drivers. Then, the same thing has happened with a new Logitech Trackball and current software and drivers:

After about 16-20 minutes, the click functions fail and I get an hourglass. The Mouse will still move the cursor. Only way to fix it is to do a shutdown by the PC's on-off button and reboot.

I have done serious virus scans and have no issues. No malware or spyware on my system. In addition, I'm running XP Professional, 3gb of memory, and have all up-to-date Windows Updates for XP.

Can someone give me an idea what might be happening, and what potential fix(es) might be?

Thanks!

Sandy

I can see, you're running PC MightyMax

http://rogueantispyware.blogspot.com/2009/...-mightymax.html

PC MightyMax is a fake spyware removal program, this software is a scan and should be avoided. PC's infected with this rogue antispyware should have it removed immediately.

PC MightyMax is installed without the users content, typically by the use of Trojans, disguised as video codecs. PC Mighty Max uses scare tactics, such as popups, fake system notifications and falsified system scan reports to get the user to buy the software.


I suggest, you start new topic at "Am I infected?" forum.
