Default I did somthing dumb

I was installing my new wirless mouse/kb combo and inftalled the wrong MS firmware for it. I went to uninstall so I could do the right thing. Anyway I uninstalled like a noob. I chose mouse in the hardware setup options and un-intalled the mouse but not the software. My mouse instantly died. I have since re-installed the right softare, tried un-plugging the mouse (hoping plug&play would find a mouse) tried system restore AND even safe mode. No mouse action at all. I have even tried a different mouse.

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

How can I re-install the mouse? (New hardware wizard doesnt work either.)

lol, always look for the obvious fix/problem
I once tried to print something and it didnt, I got really annoyed and started swearing at my computer, after half an hour of that I realised it was turned off (the printer, not the computer)

All I had to do was unplug the PS2 plug for the Keyboard, and re-plug in the USB for both. The re-connect the wireless.

If I would have seen your topic earlier then I could have told you to hit the reconnect button, I too once had that same problem.
