Here in about the last 2 weeks my mouse has been goin apshit on me. I think I remember having this problem years ago. Its not really a virus its more a kid joke. But none the less its becoming very annoying. Has anyone else had this happen I did a search for "mouse virus" in the search box but no results. I don't have any mouse software installed that I'm aware of so I guess I'll just try and uninstall and reinstall the drivers. Navagating without a mouse aught to be real fun.
if its wireless maybe something is interfering making it go crazy.
sometimes the lasers in the mouse detect movment when there is none, my old mouse would do this sometimes.....not touching the mouse yet the curser is moving slowly around bump the mouse with your hand and it stops.
Yeah I went to one of those e-card sites and it tried to install a tool bar or something. My virus canner poped up with 2 code Reds. I think its been doing it since then. But my comp and virus scanner NOD32 are so slow I thought it might be easier to reinstall the drivers. Might not, I'l try and run my scanner again.
If I move the mouse up the cursor flies the opposite direction.
Its a wired mouse.
No one has access to my pc.
I tried unistalling my mouse drivers, man was that a mistake. My comp wouldn't work at all then. I had to do a system restore.
I found an old mouse I had layin around and pluged that in and that seems to have fixed it. Strange how a laser beam can go bad. They probably put a little chip in there with a half life of about 2 years so you gotta buy every so often.
