I've used Firefox, and IE, and on both browsers, the mouse messes up. At first I thought it was the mouse, but the other mice don't work at all. After about five minutes, the mouse pointer moves, but I can't click anywhere on my browser toolbars, only on the website itself. It turns that whitish color like when it's loading, but it can't be, because other problems happen too, like I can't copy/paste, and I can still go on the website. The computer is my moms, so all I really know is this is a Windows XP, and she prefers FireFox. If you need more information, I could probably get it.

A temporary fix is to turn the mouse upside down and flip it right side up, but I have to do this constantly. Which is why I didn't look all that long for a solution, it just got too frustrating.

I have a feeling it's the computer, but I want to be sure.

Can you explain better?

I thought I was understanding you until this statement:

Do you mean "physically" turn it "upside down" and then flip it "right side up", or ? If so, then that pretty much screams hardware problem(ex: bad mouse). I don't know what you mean by "turning white" and where you can't "copy and paste", tho. That sounds like a problem with Windows(ex: virus)

Is this a laptop or desktop?
