My mouse will only work for a few seconds at a time. I can move it and click one or two things then it stops. It takes a good 20-30 seconds before it unfreezes and I can use it again. Then, after one or two clicks or movements, BAM, freezes again. I have tried using a restore point to an earlier time thinking it would help. I have updated my virus protection (Trend Micro's PC-cillin) and scanned for viruses. I have downloaded Spybot Search and Destroy and scanned for evil things. I have all my Windows updates that I've been notified to download and install. I have reinstalled my mouse driver (software). I even uninstalled the most recent software program that I installed (Koday EasyShare) thinking that was the culprit. All of this to no avail. The mouse still keeps freezing up every five seconds. It's rendered my computer useless. (I am using a laptop to post this.) My sister seems to think it's the mouse. . . but it WAS working fine up until a few weeks ago. It's relatively new (4 or 5 months old). It's a wireless laser mouse. I've noticed that the green light on the receiver turns green and stays that way when the mouse is frozen. It's almost as if the mouse is "busy". Once the light blinks once or twice, I can use the mouse again for a few seconds. Then, again, the light goes solid green and is stuck that way. Any other ideas??

CPU at 100% can cause this behavior or this.

Are you using Aero Mouse pointers? The latest Nvidia drivers have an
issue with Aero Mouse pointers and will cause the intermittent mouse
cursor issue. Change to another mouse pointer (I'm using Windows
animated and that took care of the problem

Checked the CPU and it's not running even near 100% when this occurs. I use the standard mouse pointers that I've always used. I've never changed pointers. Arggggghhhhhhhh. . . .just checking CPU usage took me a few minutes to complete.

Have you checked the battery in the wireless mouse?

Mine usually acts up just due to the batteries starting to run low ..... fresh ones usually solve the issue.

Microsoft just released an update for Vista about wireless mouses (?meeces?) - I'd suggest visiting Windows Update and having a look about for an update for Wireless HID devices (you may have to select the optional hardware updates to view this).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
