Hi, i have problem with my optic mouse from 2 or maybe 3 days. Basically, when i'm playing an RPG, where it is required to click a lot and fast, and change directions really fast as well, my mouse does not respond pretty often.

For those who play games, here is an explanation ( hope you can understand me ) basically, i use an ability by clicking on my keyboard, and after that my mouse stops responding for like 3 seconds and i can't move my character. Also sometimes when i click, it moves up a little like it's a gun during shooting. This has never happened with any mouse i had before.

I don't know when this problem started exactly, maybe 2-3 days ago. It may had something to do with the fact that i was "fixing" my windows. Basically, i cleared all useless programs ( and old games too ) i wouldn't touch anything that i don't understand the use for. Then i updated my windows and a few old audio drivers, used ccleaner to clean the register and etc.. Defragmented my local disk, cleared around 500 gb of movies ( :D ) from my hd. Anyways, is this hardware related problem or software ?

I am using Synaptics pointing device driver to disable my touch pad on the laptop. My mouse is a cheap one ( from the ones you change every 4 months )

Everything worked completely fine ever since i bough the laptop 1 year and a half ago.

Registry Cleaners

The following was originally posted by Animal, one or our Site Administrators.

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:

• Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

• Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.

• Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.

• Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer becomes infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools.

• The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in unpredictable results.

Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.

The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.
