Mouse stuck in windows XP

Specs: Windows XP
stuck mouse in windows seems to be stuck in the layering of windows boxes and other borders desk top features you name it it will get stuck in it. I can remove mouse from USB and it will work again when re-inserted but will just get re-stuck immediately it meets a windows border. Is very annoying. If I re-insert the mouse into the USB to often the USB does not read the mouse as hardware anymore, tends to freak it out too much. Computer is useless almost. I have loaded new drivers for my Nvidia card and Logitech mouse but still no use.

Hi Yeremenko

a) when you install, re-install or replace usb drivers, the device concerned should *NOT* be connected.

b) If your pc has a ps2 mouse port, are you able to remove the usb mouse completely from the pc (add/remove hardware on control panel perhaps)

Then does a ps2 mouse work?

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

Corded mice frequently develop broken wires inside the cord, often near where it enters the mouse, after the mouse has been used a lot, or at any time if the cord has been yanked on. If the insulation for the broken wire(s) is(are) intact, the connection of that(those) broken wire ends will be unreliable - sometimes the mouse will work fine, sometimes it won't. The cursor may jump all over the place, or move without you touching the mouse, or only move in some directions, or not move at all., etc., etc. Wiggling the cord near where it enters the mouse MAY make it work / not work, depending on the position of the cord.

Try a different mouse !

If you have an older mouse that has a ball inside of it, remove the ball opening cover on the bottom of the mouse and clean the accumulated crap off of the three rollers !
