    I have tried two Microsoft wireless mice (models 5000 and 6000) and both are so jerky on the screen that it is almost impossible to use. When I replaced them with my wired mouse, there are no problems.

    Is there some wireless mouse that will run properly?

    I have googled this and tried as many "solutions" as I could find. None worked.

    Thanks

    I've never seen a wireless mouse that did not run properly. Jerkiness usually means it need batteries or the receiver is out of range.

    It was the location of the receiver. It was only about two feet away but in a usb hub and may have been blockedby the monitor stand. Now, it is on the front of my system box with a direct line of sight.

    Thanks for the reply and solution. This solution was not found on any google searches and I sure wish it had been.
