    Friends: My mouse has these annoying up and down arrows signs around it. How do I remove them? Windows Vista. Thanks for any response.

    Are you saying the signs are physically on the mouse or are appearing on the screen, by the cursor???

    Chuck: Thanks for the response. Sorry about the incorrect heading. It's not plus and minus signs, but up and down arrows. Tried to edit the heading, but couldn't. The up and down arrows appear vertically around the mouse cursor occasionally causing the mouse cursor to move randomly uncontrollably around the screen. Wish I could restore it to normal. Thanks.

    Is this a laptop with a touch pad and is Vista up to date with all service packs and updates?

    open mouse settings in control panel & disable the middle click button, see if that solves it
