While one would point at the hardware usually, I am thinking it is a software thing because it is almost reproducible in regard to the content I am accessing at failures - whenever I try to watch video such as YouTube content or Netflix, there is a high likelihood of mouse failure. The same applies to embedded flash games or videos. The fact that it is responding to video like this makes me think software. But it will also fail at other times, not just when I am using videos.
I have already searched for the latest drivers and Windows says the latest are already installed. I tend to believe this because the mouse is made by (wait for it) Microsoft and I like to think that they know what they are doing in this regard (hopefully).
I have googled and tried all the stuff I found with those results and with Windows help file and the Microsoft Knowledge Base articles and all the Intellipoint stuff as well. No luck anywhere. Does anyone else experience this or know what to do to fix it?
Thanks in advance.
