    Is it possible for a computer mouse to just get too old to work? I've cleaned it, and I've changed batteries so now I'm thinking could it be the mouse it self? I'm working with "Windows Me", and all it's really used for is email and the Internet. Nothing was recently downloaded, except for "Spy bot" and it actually started to work better after that, but now it started to act up again. What happens is I'll be checking email, etc, and then ( after about 15-20 minutes) my mouse will freeze, then disappear all together, then a box from my ISP will come asking if I want to reconnect or sign off. I'll go get new batteries tomorrow just in case the ones I used were old, but if you think it's the mouse(?) Could it be something else other then the mouse? If you need more info, just let me know (I'll try my best) to get back to you with the infor you need. Just remember talk to me like I'm 4, because I'm a computer idiot. Thanks.................................dazee;);)

    Try a different mouse. That will narrow down the hardware part...

    Ok, ekim I'm off to get a new mouse right now: I'll let you know how it works out. If it turns out to have been the mouse then I'll be able to work longer then 15-20 minutes, on the other hand if it freezes then at least we'll known it's something else..............dazee
