See if it works while you are in Windows Safe-Mode.

Also, Most Virus and Spyware scans are likely to work better in Windows Safe-Mode.

Also, you should learn to use the keyboard, instead of being so mouse dependent.

It does not work in safe mode.
I have tried to find a list of keyboard combinations but without success.
I have used mousekeys which is very slow and the effects seem to be erratic.
I am really looking fo ways to get the pointer responding to my mouse again.so thay I can load some dignostic software.

Not much info to go on.

USB Mouse?
Wireless Mouse?
PS/2 Mouse?

Depending on your answer maybe you can temporarily plug a standard mouse in the PS/2 socket.

Its a ps2 mouse (with a a ball and a tail) but I have now cleared the problem. I had an Internet Security program that had either been corrupted or was not completely installed (this in turn had been caused by a memory fault caused by a brief power cut)
Uising "MouseKeys" to navigate, I tried to uninstall the IS program using Control Panel.> Add/Remove Programs.and when this failed I tried again istead of choosing [Remove] I selected the [Repair} option.
This repaired the IS program,rebooted the system and everything is back to normal..
Than you for your interest. I hope this information is a help to someone.
