Can anyone explain why my mouse is suddenly working backwards? When I move the mouse up, the cursor moves down, and when I move the mouse down, the cursor moves up. The scroll wheel works fine, so does the back button. I have checked the properties, the hardware, checked for updates, uninstalled the software, unplugged the mouse, rebooted the 'puter, reinstalled the software, plugged the mouse back in....still backwards. I'm running XP pro and my mouse is a Microsoft wireless explorer 2.0 I got as a wireless set with the keyboard... keyboard is fine. I had problems a while ago with the mouse not working at all. So I removed it from the USB hook-up and connected it to the PS2. It's been working fine for months--and then - BAM - it got all turned around. I feel as if i'm trying to move it by looking in a mirror. A little irritataing, to say the least. Do any of you kind persons with great knowledge know what could be causing this to happen? And how do I fix it? Thanx everybody.
