    Recently I updated Skype. No problems really, other than it changed my start up page to msn. A few other annoying things were happening after the update so, I decided to use system restore as I have many times to undo other problems from updates.
    The nearest restore date just happened to be about eight days before,on the same day as my renewing of Kaspersky. But I went ahead.
    When it restarted,a few of the normal start up programs began to load including Skype, and thats where it stalled. mouse is frozen in the middle of the screen.
    Have bought another mouse,even used it in a different port.
    Have started in safe mode and bios setup, the keyboard arrows work ok but I cant operate this machine without the mouse
    Please help
    still run XP

    Please try shutting down, unplugging the power cord, (remove battery if it's a laptop) then press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds. Then you can replug it in and try it.

    Thanks for the reply KomputerKid,
    tried doing that,to no avail unfortunately.
    If I start it in safe mode or bios setup is there a way of just using the keyboard to close down the half open programmes such as skype ?
    Thanks for taking the time to reply davoh
