SOLVED

 

Recently, my mouse started to act strangely. I was in the middle of a Counter-Strike Global Offensive game and Norton Internet Security made me Alt-Tab. I saw that a file named "HIDUSBF.sys" was removed. This file was a system file I used to overclock my mouse and it is 100% completely safe, just Norton giving false errors as always. Since then, my mouse has been disconnecting and reconnecting randomly and boy is it frustrating! It is easily fixed by plugging into another USB port but then, that too will make the mouse freeze and I only have 2 USB ports. My only fix is to restart my computer or putting it to sleep then waking it up again.

 

Please I would really appreciate ANY help. This is extremely frustrating and I really need to fix this. I saw many other people have had this issue too.

 

PC Specs:

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

Intel Pentium B960 Dual Core 2.2GHz

6GB RAM

Power Supply = Laptop Charger 

 

Norton then later gave the file the all-clear and I have now overclocked my mouse again using the files as I hoped that it would fix my problem, but it didn't. Here is the video I followed to overclock my mouse: 

 

Thank you for your help.

UPDATE:

 

I found an old mouse which I rarely used. I plugged it in and I have used it for over an hour and it hasn't frozen once! I can safely assume that it was my other mouse that had the problem. I will be upgrading to a Steelseries Rival soon! Thanks!

I just recently unscrewed and opened up my wireless mouse and it was filthy as hell inside. I did this after the left-click button began sporadically not working. After a good blow out and a gentle clean with an old toothbrush it seems to be working much better, although not yet 100% perfect.

Nice to hear you solved your issue.

Not sure that BC staff are gonna take too kindly to you posting vids directing others to web downloads, though.

Im a rookie and purely recreational pc user. Im utterly obsessed with security (even though I consider myself a safe and law-abiding internet user!) and run a combo of the following freeware security suites.....

Windows Defender/firewall

Regular scans with Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner, JRT, HitmanPro

I just posted it because I thought that if anyone could help me with fixing the problem, they would want the files that were mentioned. It was easier for me to link the video.

There is nothing wrong with the video you posted since you used it in an effort to resolve your issue.
