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??
