I have one of those optical mouse and every now and then it freezes. Sometimes it will come back on its own, and I've tried cleaning the eye which works some of the time, but this last time I had to reboot to get it back.
The mouse is maybe 4-5 years old. Is it time to replace or could it be something else?

Thanks for your help,
Tricky

The obvious answer for me would be to exchange the mouse and see if the problem persists. You can get a good Logitec optical mouse for about $15.00, after 4 or 5 years it might be time for a new toy for the cat.

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