    Uninstall any software related to the mouse using Add/Remove programs. Turn off the PC disconnect then reconnect the mouse. Bootup and reinstall your mouse drivers

    Thaks Mike. I use XP and IE. I did what you said but I still get the No MDATA.DAT msg. It took 1 minute and 35 sec to connect to internet after rebooting and 30 seconds more to get Outlook Express. I have 2 GB of memory and something is really wrong. I have cable w/3bm and it is very slow. I recently installed a MS Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse and this seems to be my problem. Do you have any ideas? Shd I start with the cable co. or what do you suggest?
