    I am using a Dell Dimension E510 that I upgraded to 3 Gb of memory and then upgraded from XP Media Center to Vista Home Premium. I'm having a problem with my wireless mouse. I purchased and used (without a problem on XP) a Microsoft Elite Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. Since I upgraded to Vista, I have been having problems with the mouse. When I opened an internet page, the second I moved the cursor out of the toolbar and into the page, the page would begin jumping and flickering up and down. Twice now I've deleted the mouse & keyboard problem and re-installed them, and they seem to work for a while. I finally figured out yesterday that this occurred after I ran that IOBIT Windows Cleaner free program so I deleted that program, deleted the Microsoft bluetooth program and then re-installed the Intellitype and Intellimouse programs (6.1) and everything seemed to be working well. This morning, I can't get the mouse to work at all. The system reads the keyboard OK (I'm typing on it right now) and it tells me that the mouse batteries are good so I believe that it sees the mouse, but the cursor will not move with the mouse. Can anyone help me with this?

    Thanks,

    Try updating the mouse driver.

    Thanks. Following your advice, I went to Control Panel and uninstalled Intellipoint, then ran the installation program again. It didn't make any difference. I'm using the wireless keyboard so I know that the receiver is working OK but the mouse will not. Maybe the mouse itself is malfunctioning?

    Yup it could be the culprit just to make sure try using the mouse to an another computer if you have one to know if it is really malfunctioning. But if the mouse work then you need to install the latest driver for the Intellimouse.
