Thread: Very Weird Problem

  1. #1
    My mouse doesn't always work smoothly when I am connected to the internet, even if I am using a program such as word that is not connected to the internet. Yet when I unpug my connection the mouse runs perfectly. Why should the internet connection make a difference? I have loads of memory, could it be a process that was conflicting?

    I have had this problem since I bought the computer, its not a real problem and I dont have a virus or trojan. I just dont understand when I unplug the connection to the telephone line my mouse works perfectly, yet when i'm connected it is either fine or jerky.

    COULD be spyware, worth a scan to find out, but i doubt it.

    try getting the latest mouse drivers, graphics drivers, and network\ethernet card drivers.

    download spybot, you most probably have a spyware program known as comet cursor on your PC
    Those who dont learn from the past are doomed to repeat It.

    As I say its definetly not a virus or trojan because I've tested it with 3 trojan scanners and with virus scannars, and I dont think its a driver problem because its been like it since I bought it with the latest driver, and a brand new keyboard, originally it was wireless keyboard but I changed and still have the same problem. I notice that my keyboard is starting to work slowly as well when i'm connected to the internet. But sometimes there isn't a problem it is now and then.

    It could be an IRQ problem. check in device manager for conflicts.

    * You can open Device Manager by double-clicking on the System icon in Control Panel, choosing the Hardware tab, and clicking Device Manager. Or press windows key and pause break key.

    Click on pointing device check for conflicts . Mine says IRQ = 12 . You can update drivers or delete mouse then restart computer let windows reinstall.
