Thanks for the response. I assumed that was the case. However, there is little to nothing on the subject available on the internet.
Also, I am not sure I asked my question clearly enough. I wanted to ask if one were to take a PS2 ball mouse from an infected computer and salvage it for use on a clean computer, would the clean computer get infected by the PS2 ball mouse?
I was inclined to think 'no' and, based on your response, I would assume I was correct.
Thanks so much!
