    I recently started having problems with my mouse freezing up. It seems to happend for some reason when i Launch WinMX and/or at aol at same time,this iv'e never had issue with till now. thought maybe it was a device issue so i went and replaced the Optical Mouse i had with new.

    System:

    Intel P4 1.5 cpu
    Intel Motherboard
    384 SDRAM
    10 gig HD(320 MB available)

    Hi Cage72, Welcome to TSG !!
    See what you have running in the background. Go to start,run type msconfig
    Then click on startup tab. See what items are checked.
    You can go here and get a description of the items.

    You have the new mouse drivers for XP i suppose?
    Is it just your mouse that is freezing up??
    See if you have a conflict in device manager?
    Are you using an USB mouse? Try switching to PS/2 and see idf you still experience the same problems. Most USB mice come with an adapter
