    Any suggestions on how to regain mouse control?

    I have dual boot Win7-Win10 and until recently I could still boot to a usable Win7, even though the lic registration was canceled presumably due to installing Win10 over the same lic on a different partition. When you do the free upgrade it transfer's the lic from 7 to 10. I only use 7 or trouble shooting problems where I want to make sure it's not a Win10 issue.

    Now, when I boot to 7, I have no mouse. The cursor just sits there. Also the up/down/left/right arrows don't work, so can't select the MS key or any key. Pretty hard to do anything when you lose all navigation ability. Reinserting the USB connection and using different ports did nothing, nor did plugging it into the main ps/2 port with an adapter. Also booting to safe mode does not change anything. The USB mouse works just fine with Win10.

    Is this Microsoft's way of saying "tsk, tsk, don't use that OS anymore"?
