    We've been having intermittent freezing problems with our Mouse for the last 6 months and it's really starting to bug me.

    We're an AMD Athlon 3000/ Nvidia Graphics PC running XP using Microsoft 3000 Wired Mouse.

    For no apparent reason the Mouse double click actions become inoperative. The only get around (which appears to reset the mouse) is Ctrl Alt Delete then close the Task Manager WIndow by pressing Esc key - thereafter double clicks work again for a few selections but then inevitably stop.
    It's still possible to make selections with the arrow and return keys, but patience runs thin after a while. I have also tried slowing/accelerating the click speeds to no avail.

    This normally occurs after the machine has been running for a while - it doesn't start up with the problem - which made me wonder if it's a heat problem on the processor? I've checked the BIOS but everything seems to be within tolerance. I very much doubt if it's a Mouse hardware issue - some outside agent seem to be making this happen.:confused:
