Open the task manager and see how many programs and processes are running.

What size CPU, how much RAM, what kind of mouse, how is it connected to the computer - wired or wireless and PS2 or USB?

Run your resident virus program after updating it so it has the latest definitions, then run Adaware and Spybot, again updating them and running them in safe mode.

After that, run several web based scans. Pick at least three of the following if not all of them.

Web based online Antivirus and anti-malware scans: (these can be run regardless of whatever else you are using. You must use Internet Explorer to run these.)


Microsoft Full Service Scan
http://safety.live.com/site/en-US/default.htm


Kaspersky Anti-Virus Web Scanner
http://www.kaspersky.com/service?chapter=161739400#betatest


Panda Activescan (IE only)
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/co...n_principal.htm

Trend Micro antivirus and malware scan:
http://housecall-beta.trendmicro.com/en/st...orp.asp?id=scan

Trend Micro antivirus European Edition (supports Mozilla based browsers)
http://uk.trendmicro-europe.com/consumer/h...call_launch.php

Etrust Anti-virus web scanner
http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/virusinfo/scan.aspx.

online trojan scans here -
http://scan.sygatetech.com/pretrojanscan.html

http://windowsecurity.com/trojanscan

Windows Security Trojanscan
http://www.windowsecurity.com/trojanscan/trojanscan.asp

Run at least one of the trojan scans in addition to the virus scans.

Set all of the scans you use to fix what they find.

You must use Internet Explorer for most if not all of these as they use Active X which Mozilla based browsers do not have.

If the result is not conclusively satisfactory I suggest you download Hijack This and following the instructions you will find at the following link explicitly, post your HJT log in the forum designated for it.

I'm having the same problem with my mouse freezing up. It started when I was using an optical wired mouse. I switched to an old regular ball type mouse. That made it better for a while, but now it freezes up several times a session. I've tried using Control-ALt-Delete and the Windows key, as I've seen reccommened elsewhere, to no avail. I've run several anti-virus programs as well. It is not a USB connection. This is driving me crazy!

It might have been better if you had started your own thread for your particular issue.

To troubleshoot this problem you will need a second mouse, preferably a USB mouse. If you change to the USB mouse do you continue to have these issues? Did you need to install a driver for the new mouse to work? Are you sure it is the correct driver? Is there a newer one available? Can you take your mouse, put it in another computer and what happens? Does it work correctly in the other computer?

Just to add my 2 - I recently had this problem, and it turned out that the mouse was working fine. It was just that the cursor wouldn't move - yet I could still go to another button and press it.

Confusing as all getout! I tried a USB mouse in place of my wired mouse - same thing! Luckily I monitor all changes to my system - I'd installed 2 programs since the behavior started - ISO Recorder (which I've used before on this system) and Nero Express.

Uninstalled Nero Express and everything is fine again!:thumbsup:

When the trouble first started, I was using an infa red mouse thorough a USB coneection. At first, I swapped out to a regular old mouse & connection. I thought that took care of it but it started up again. I removed the driver & let it reinstall as 'Found new hardware" - but it's still happening.

Have you tried moving the 'defective' mice to another known good computer? Try that and see if they work in a different computer.

My problem also came back.

The only changes to my system were:
1) Nero Express
2) ISO Recorder
3) Windows Updates

I removed Nero and ISO Recorder - no joy
Did a repair install - no joy
Used a previous image of my system and it's been working fine for a couple of hours now - no mouse lockup at all!

Good luck!

Computers are hard to diagnose sometimes! Challenging! That's why I like 'em!

It seems for every one thing that can go wrong, there can be a dozen possible causes, and the trick is coming up with good ways to troubleshoot the problem. That is where the real skill is, huh?

I ran into a similar situation yesterday, for what it's worth. Can't really explain it. A new computer, the guy was complaining that the computer was 'slow'. Well, what was actually happening was the curser would not respond to inputs very quickly. You move the mouse, the curser stays in the same place for about a second or so and then moves, etc.

I found a knowledge base article at Microsoft that just touched on the subject, and they suggested changing the jumper on the hard drive from cable select to master. I did, and guess what? Instant success! Mouse works normally now.

Check out the settings in the control panel for its settings.

Do you have Microsoft's default PS2 driver or have you installed some kind of proprietary driver like Logitech's or one for a wireless or infrared mouse?

If it is wireless - change the batteries in it.
