You will be missing heaps
of updates and security patches without SP3
- Windows XP Service Pack 2 x86 NTFS
- Yes listed here.
At the top of the XP forum area
is a guide to updating to SP3
that is a bit dated now, and most of the bugs listed no longer exist. - Helps you heaps -.i use a logitech, lazer, wireless mouse for many years now
<< When were the batteries last replaced
) Do not use Rechargable
Take the USB plug
out of the computer (remember the slot
) clean it inside and outside
and try another USB slot
first, put it back in the old one if it has not altered
Now clean all of the mouse
both under as well as on top, then very gently tap
the mouse while it is upside down (crap sticks in them) I know, because mine needs a clean.
Are you now using Normal Mode
even if a few things are a bit slow ? Because it would be a lot better for updates etc.
Go Start > Programs, and is Windows or Microsoft updates listed at the top of programs and we can try to see if any Critical Updates are listed there -
