Hi every one , I heard this is the  best forum for help , so I registered

I know sometimes you can only articulate things by phone , but  I hope you can help me out

sometimes when I click a shortcut  link on desktop -

my  mouse stops working sometimes when I click a shortcut  link on desktop - and I hate to have to restart my computer every time just  to get the mouse to work again ..

What happens is that little round blue circle comes on desktop , like its try to bring up that web site from I.E.

but it just keeps circling and a side effect is I can't do anything with the mouse - Unless I restart

Is there any keyboard combination or anything at all I can do without having to restart my computer to get the mouse to work

Did you try a replacement mouse?


Did you try removing the mouse drivers, using Device Manager...then rebooting the system (drivers reinstall automatically)?
