Are you, by any chance, using it in a sunny room? That can affect mouse operation.

✔ Best Answer
Try this first.

Are you using a mousepad, or just a tabletop or something?

Is this wired or wireless?

If wired, have you tried a different USB port? (If it's PS/2, you could buy a converter)

If wireless, have you tried putting new batteries in it?

It's quite likely that the mouse itself is faulty. Try another if possible.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

some wireless mouses also have a connect button on the bottom of them that will reset them or make them connect on a different wireless channel in case something is interfering.

Try changing USB ports for the receiver.

Also, don't let the mouse get more than about 4 or 5 feet from the receiver, as they can sometimes act erratically just from distance.

l thought of trying this as lve tried everything else, I think lve found the cure, by using different virus checkers, l ran 1st, McAfee Virus Checker, then Advanced System Care Ultimate 7, in Safe Mode and then after it booted up. So far so good, seems stable. It took a while, but hopefully will be ok. l hope it helps some one else.

Thank you for all your help

Give it a few days then let us know if it is still OK. I'm a bit surprised that it was virus related but computers can be full of surprises.

Glad to hear it. Viruses are often poorly written so I guess they can cause oddball affects. Thanks for popping back to let us know.
