    I recently reformatted a computer I got in 2000, for the first time. I put Windows XP Pro on, and so far everything seems to be perfect aside from the annoyance of downloading the occasional software when an old installation disc won't work.

    However, one little thing is bothering me to death.

    Whenever I am asked to restart, the mouse appears frozen. I have to use the windows key to get it to shutdown. Rebooting it, however, initializes the mouse and doesn't cause it to freeze.

    Any idea what I can do to get my PC to recongize the mouse upon a simple restart function?

    also get every update from microsoft .. if its from 2000 you dont need any of those old installation discs any longer , they are so far out-dated that they will only do harm instead of good ..
    top of IE browser under tools / windows update . if it isnt already turned on =automatic updates ..
    hope this helps you out .
    also i have noticed myself with win xp . logitech mice have problems ... you have to get the drivers from the logitech website for your specific model ..
    hope this helps you !

    cheers.

    Everything checks out to fully support the operating system, and then some. Also, the replaced partition was from 98 SE, so I'm going to try to fetch better drivers for the mouse and report back with an update.
