I am using an optical mouse and have both wireless and wired. I prefer the wireless one. my OS is win xp, home ed, 3
While working the cursor suddenly stops moving. I change to the other mouse but still no movement of cursor. the keyboard cursor works. i go to ctl-alt-delete, choose shut down, then restart, sometimes the mouse works after that but i often have to unplug the computer, wait a few seconds, restart and then the mouse/cursor works. this is happening more and more and i don't think it's just a mouse issue. please offer some ideas or fixes if you can. thanks jim

try plugging the mice into another USB port, one of them is most likely damaged.
