    i have not been able to delete the ps2 from reloading, could this be conflicting with a new mouse driver (intellimouse elplorer wireless) newest driver installed, does not work...uninstalled then reinstalll. several things tried...still loading the ps/2 mouse. I am using a laptop, touch pad works fine...wireless mouse not moving, lights on etc. said driver is sinstalled correctly, removed and when reboot loads the ps/2 again?
    not sure what to do next, restored. tec. tried may things, might ahve mad it worse, but touch pad works,

    The Microsoft Explorer mouse (the Blue Track version) is not an Intellimouse. Make sure you select the Explorer mouse when you install the software (or change it in the settings and reboot). Neither mouse uses PS/2. Both are USB mice. If there is a conflict, it's with your USB and PS/2. It has nothing to do with the mouse.

    Try uninstalling the software and just use the mouse. Windows 98 and up already fully support the mouse and don't need the additional software.
