    When I right click my M/S Intellipoint wheel mouse on my desktop or in some open windows the pointer hangs up displaying the wait hourglass icon. I can't use the mouse right click to delete files, open the explorer. In some programs I am able to use the right button. To get out of this problem I have to ctrl, alt, del and go to the Task manager then end the task if I am in a window. If I am just on the desktop I have to either reboot or log off the current user and log back on.

    I have used my Windows 2000 setup disk to repair the installation with no positive results.

    I have two users and the administrator set up. If I log off my user and login to another the problem goes away.

    Yes, Three including a non optical mouse. It makes no difference
