Many times while I am on the computer my mouse pointer will freeze and not move. Sometimes the solution to this problem will be to unplug the mouse from the back of the computer and plug it back in and voila, the mouse pointer will move again. Yet, sometimes this does not work and I have to restart the computer. A problem I believe is related and what leads me to believe it isn't a hardware problem is that my mouse pointer will sometimes jerk about the screen when I try to move it, but will ultimately end up flying to the lower left part of the screen. Touching the mouse when it does this will result in the pointer flying about the screen aimlessly and for some odd reason the mouse will automatically click upon anything it touches which many times causes much of my windows to automatically close. The solution for this problem is not unplugging the mouse because even if I do this the mouse pointer in the lower left part of the screen will still be continuously clicking the Windows Start button. I have to wait patiently when this attack happens for it to finish before I can continue working on my computer. Can anyone help me with this problem?
I thank all who help me and beforehand I would like to say forgive me if I ask some stupid question. It happens to me a lot and I usually just need someone to say the obvious to me. Although I still live by my motto
"What I say is sealed in my words." or a variant of that. (I have it written down, trust me.)
